Barbara Kingsolver and her family embark on a year-long culinary adventure in which they endeavor to eat only food products grown within the county in which they live in the Appalachians. The idea, with a few key exceptions, is to either grow it themselves or purchase from local farmers. Barbara details what each of the months look like from a production and consumption standpoint, her daughter Camille weighs in with vignettes and recipe ideas, and her husband Steven contributes from an environmental and scientific standpoint.

Their tale is both inspiring and disheartening. I somewhat regretted reading this book in the winter as it made me yearn for a farmers market, all of which are still several months from opening here in Minnesota. Learning some of the truths about agriculture -- in particular the seed industry -- in the U.S. was extremely dismaying. However, this is the type of book I wish I could hand to everyone I know to read.
