Novelist Barbara Kingsolver once wrote, "If we can't, as artists, improve on real life, we should put down our pencils and go bake bread." In Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, she manages to do both, applying her literary skills to a new food environment.

I picked this book from the Refer A Book Friday contest. Amy of The Sleepy Reader recommend it; you can see her review here. I have always been interested in growing things and farming because some of the earlier generations of my family were farmers. I learned much from this book about potatoes and...

5.0 Informative, inspiring, and surprisingly gripping
Novelist Barbara Kingsolver has a background in science and she knows how to tell a story so when she writes about the year her family only ate foods--both plant and animal--that were grown and produced locally it’s fascinating, informative, inspiring, and surprisingly gripping, right down to the la...

This book gave me desires. Deep dark desires for...gardening. And making my own cheese. And doing more things from scratch. And doing them now.The thing is, these are all things I have aspirations to do anyway, but my way is rather slower than the way Barbara Kingsolver and her family approached try...
