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.

She was awarded the National Humanities Medal, our country's highest honor for service through the arts. She received the 2011 Dayton Literary Peace Prize for the body of her work, and in 2010 won Britain's Orange Prize for The Lacuna. Before she made her living as a writer, Kingsolver earned degrees in biology and worked as a scientist. She now lives with her family on a farm in southern Appalachia.



Camille Kingsolver graduated from Duke University in 2009 and currently works in the mental health field.

From AudioFile:

Eaters must understand that how we eat determines how the world is used. They will with the help of this book from the Kingsolver-Hopp family. And why not make the narration of this book a family affair--since its a chronology of a year of conscious food choices involving abstinence from industrial food? The process includes vegetable growing and canning, cheese-making, poultry-raising and -slaughtering, and locovore shopping. Hopp, Kingsolvers husband, supplies scientific asides and practical suggestions on how to make better use of the world around us. Daughter Camille suggests recipes and meal plans. The book is so jam-packed with information that listeners will want to take notes. Theres a Web site, as well. And the farmyard sound effects are not to be missed. D.P.D.
