Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver, her husband and her daughter Camille, is an enjoyable account of a year in the life of this famous novelist and her family, beginning as they leave Arizona for the southern Appalacian mountains of Virginia. They are going to a region where they have family, but even more importantly, to a place where it is possible to grow your own food.
Their concept is to only eat locally for a year. They do it.
I found the book fascinating and inspiring. Kingsolver’s ability to write makes me splutter with jealousy.
The book combines information about how food is grown and marketed with their experiences. The locavore movement must have partly grown out of this book!
And here it is as an ebook
