Animal, Vegetable, Miracle  by Barbara Kingsolver

Animal, Vegetable, Miracle

370 pages; HarperCollins
Part memoir, part journalistic investigation, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle tells the story of how Kingsolver's family was changed by becoming locavores—eating only foods produced locally. With sidebars on various aspects of food-production and nutritional information, meal plans and recipes, it is part great read, part how-to manual for rethinking the way you eat.
