About this item

Novelist Barbara Kingsolver, along with her husband and elder daughter, has written a memoir about their year dedicated to eating only food they grew on their small farm in Virginia. After relocating cross-country from their home in Tucson, the family began their year as locovores with fresh asparagus planted years earlier. Month by month, Kingsolver shares plantings, harvests, and insights. A small essay and recipes by her daughter Camille end of each chapter. Lily, the younger daughter, contributed with a well-tended flock of chickens. Throughout the book, Kingsolver's husband, Steven L. Hopp, shares information about everything from factory farming to fossil fuel.
Follows the author's family's efforts to live on locally- and home-grown foods, an endeavor through which they learned lighthearted truths about food production and the connection between health and diet.
