Book Review: Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life by Barbara Kingsolver with Steven L. Hopp and Camille Kingsolver

If you're interested in the issues of “localvorism” (local food movement), a gardening journal, do-it-yourself family farming, growing seasonal organic foods, the policies and economic issues of industrial farming, anecdotes about dedicated small local farmers, food culture, and seasonal recipes, then you may be interested in reading this book. Barbara Kingsolver and her family decide to move from Arizona to their rural farm in southern Appalachia and live and work there for a year as an experiment to see if they could live off the fruits of their own labor, both from their farm and their live stock.
