Bestselling author Barbara Kingsolver's first nonfiction narrative will open your eyes in a hundred new ways to an old truth: You are what you eat.

Since its release in May 2007, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle has helped launch a modern transition in America’s attitudes toward food. In this lively account of a family’s year of eating locally on their farm in Southern Appalachia, Barbara Kingsolver and her coauthors unearth the secret lives of vegetables and the unexpected satisfactions of knowing their food producers—and sometimes their dinner—on a first-name basis.
