Animal, Vegetable, Miracle CD: A Year of Food Life

Kingsolver, Barbara Author

Image Not Available

Hang on for the ride: with characteristic poetry and pluck, Barbara Kingsolver and her family sweep readers along on their journey away from the industrial-food pipeline to a rural life in which they vow to buy only food raised in their own neighborhood, grow it themselves, or learn to live without it. Their good-humored search yields surprising discoveries about turkey sex life and overly zealous zucchini plants, en route to a food culture that's better for the neighborhood and also better on the table.

Part memoir, part journalistic investigation, 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.

She was awarded the National Humanities Medal, our country's highest honor for service through the arts.

He teaches at Emory & Henry College in the Environmental Studies department. He coauthored Animal, Vegetable, Miracle with Barbara Kingsolver and Camille Kingsolver.

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.
