Can we ever really know what we’re eating? Is it possible to walk away from today’s industrial, processed-food pipeline? Bestselling author Barbara Kingsolver and her family reveal that the answer to both questions is yes. They have chronicled a year in which they vowed to buy only locally produced food, grow it themselves or learn to live without it.
    With her illuminating prose, Kingsolver has created a compelling, wise and often humorous look at what it takes to reinvent a food culture that is healthy for the family, the neighbourhood and the planet. Part memoir, part journalistic investigation, part resource and entirely a great story, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle passionately urges us to take a second look at what we put on our tables and how it gets there.
