Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver


Barbara Kingsolver is known as a brilliant writer of fiction and essays, but in this nonfiction masterpiece she chronicles a year in the life of her family where “they vow to buy only food raised in their own neighborhood, grow it themselves, or learn to live without it.”

Animal, Vegetable, Miracle makes a passionate case for putting the kitchen back at the center of family life and diversified farms at the center of the American diet.”
