Title: Animal, Vegetable, Miracle Author: Barbara Kingsolver with Steven L. Hopp and Camille Kingsolver Genre: Non-Fiction/Memoir

Blurb

Author Barbara Kingsolver and her family abandoned the industrial-food pipeline to live a rural life—vowing that, for one year, they’d only buy food raised in their own neighborhood, grow it themselves, or learn to live without it. Part memoir, part journalistic investigation, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle is an enthralling narrative that will open your eyes in a hundred new ways to an old truth: You are what you eat.

My Thoughts

Who knew a book about a meal plan could be so engaging? Barbara Kingsolver is an absolute master. Her writing is tight yet evocative. I fell in love with her family, her friends, her farm, her animals, and her journey. She spoke to my heart, answered my burning questions, and treated every living creature with respect and dignity. I was inspired. Animal, Vegetable, Miracle will appeal to fans of The Omnivore’s Dilemma, Food, Inc., or farmer’s markets. For those keen on trying their own hand at eating local, Barbara’s daughter, Camille, includes their family’s favorite recipes based on locally-sourced produce. Kingsolver’s husband, Steven Hopp, includes highly informative asides about many issues surrounding our modern food system, as well as handy resources for those who wish to learn more. I loved every page, and I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
