"You'lll relish this tasty memoir by novelist Barbara Kingsolver (The Poisonwood Bible) if you want to know more about the food you eat. The author and her family -- biologist husband Steven and daughters Camille and Lily -- move from Tucson, Arizona to a small town in Virginia's southern Appalachians where they strive to eat only locally and home-grown food (there are a few exceptions, coffee being one). Among other things, readers will learn about vegetable gardening, turkey breeding, and cooking with what is in season (recipes are included). Armchair travellers will enjoy the Appalachian setting as well as the vacations (there's even one to Italy). With wonderful descriptions, humour, fact-filled sidebars, and family lore, this lively book is informative as well as charming."
