This is a story of how author Barbara Kingsolver and her family left the industrial food pipelines to live a rural life— deliberately eating food produced from the same place where they worked, went to school, loved their neighbors, drank the water, and breathed the air—vowing that, for one year, they would only buy food raised in their own neighborhood, grow it themselves, or learn to live without it. Part memoir, part journalistic investigation, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, is an enthralling narrative that will open your eyes in a hundred new ways to an old truth: You are what you eat.

Barbara Kingsolver’s twelve books of fiction and creative non-fiction include the novels The Poisonwood Bible and The Bean Trees.

Steven L Hopp teaches environmental studies at Emory & Henry College and conducts research in bioacoustics and the natural history of vireos.

Camille Kingsolver attends Duke University, where she studies biology, and anatomy, and teaches yoga.
