Part memoir, part journalistic investigation, "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle" is the tale of how award winning author Barbara Kingsolver and her family abandoned the industrial-food pipeline to live a rural life - vowing that, for one year, they'd only buy food raised in their own neighborhood, grow it themselves, or live to learn without it.
