Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver Summary

"We wanted to live in a place that could feed us: where rain falls, crops grow, and drinking water bubbles up right out of the ground." Barbara Kingsolver opens her home to us, as she and her family attempt a year of eating only local food, much of it from their own garden. Inspired by the flavours and culinary arts of a local food culture, they explore many a farmers market and diversified organic farms at home and across the country. With characteristic warmth, Kingsolver shows us how to put food back at the centre of the political and family agenda. Animal, Vegetable, Miracle is part memoir, part journalistic investigation, and is full of original recipes that celebrate healthy eating, sustainability and the pleasures of good food.

Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver,Camille Kingsolver,Steven L. Hopp Summary

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 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.

Animal, Vegetable, Miracle - Tenth Anniversary Edition by Barbara Kingsolver,Camille Kingsolver,Steven L. Hopp,Lily Hopp Kingsolver Summary

A beautiful deluxe trade paperback edition celebrating the 10th anniversary of Barbara Kingsolver's New York Times bestseller, which describes her family's adventure as they move to a farm in southern Appalachia and realign their lives with the local food chain. Since its publication in 2007, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle has captivated readers with its blend of memoir and journalistic investigation. Newly updated with original pieces from the entire Kingsolver clan, this commemorative volume explores how the family's original project has been carried forward through the years. When Barbara Kingsolver and her family moved from suburban Arizona to rural Appalachia, they took on a new challenge: to spend a year on a locally-produced diet, paying close attention to the provenance of all they consume. Concerned about the environmental, social, and physical costs of American food culture, they hoped to recover what Barbara considers our nation's lost appreciation for farms and the natural processes of food production. Since 2007, their scheme has evolved enormously. In this new edition, featuring an afterword composed by the entire Kingsolver family, Barbara's husband, Steven, discusses how the project grew into a farm-to-table restaurant and community development project training young farmers in their area to move into sustainable food production. Camille writes about her decision to move back to a rural area after college, and how she and her husband incorporate their food values in their lives as they begin their new family. Lily, Barbara's youngest daughter, writes about how growing up on a farm, in touch with natural processes and food chains, has shaped her life as a future environmental scientist. And Barbara writes about their sheep, and how they grew into her second vocation as a fiber artist, and reports on the enormous response they've received from other home-growers and local-food devotees. With Americans' ever-growing concern over an agricultural establishment that negatively affects our health and environment, the Kingsolver family's experiences and observations remain just as relevant today as they were ten years ago. Animal, Vegetable, Miracle is a modern classic that will endure for years to come. “Cogent and illuminating...Without sentimentality, this book captures the pulse of the farm and the deep gratification it provides, as well as the intrinsic humor of the situation.”—Janet Maslin, New York Times

Quicklet on Barbara Kingsolver, Camille Kingsolver, and Steven Hopp's Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Kate Kastelein Summary

Quicklets: Your Reading Sidekick! ABOUT THE BOOK We wanted to live in a place that could feed us: where rain falls, crops grow, and drinking water bubbles up right out of the ground. Its hard to categorize Animal, Vegetable, Mineral by Barbara Kingsolver, Camille Kingsolver, and Stephen Hopp. The book is a result of a year-long project where Kingsolver, her husband Stephen, and her two daughters Camille and Lilly eat food either grown themselves or locally produced. In addition to firsthand accounts recounting the trials and tribulations of raising their own food including turkeys! this book serves as a how-to manual for those interested in embarking on a similar journey, and provides a strong social commentary about the current state of the food system in the United States. MEET THE AUTHOR Kate Kastelein has over 10 years of experience writing, researching and editing articles, eNewsletters, web content, press releases, and resource books. She's a huge nerd, and is interested in everything from science and the latest technology to crafts, food and celebrity gossip. Kate's a native Mainer, and when she's not shoveling snow or writing, she's huddled near the fire with her daughter, husband, and dogs. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Because of the amount of travelling food must do, many conventional growers choose produce for durability rather than taste. Most fruit is picked before it has ripened, which it does on the road instead of on the vine. Since produce grown by local farmers or by yourself travels very short distances, it can be harvested when ripe. This allows for maximum taste and nutrition. Meat is another story altogether. Animal, Vegetable, Miracle points out the horrors of CAFOs where animals are packed tightly together in horrible conditions for their entire lives. At best, they are fed grains saturated with hormones and antibiotics, and at worst, things like sawdust. During their year of sustainable eating, Kingsolvers family eats meat raised by responsible local farmers who treat their animals well, allow them plenty of space to roam, eat grass, and live much happier lives than their factory farmed counter parts...

The Political Language of Food by Samuel Boerboom Summary

The Political Language of Food addresses why the language used in the production, marketing, selling, and consumption of food is inherently political. Food language is rarely neutral and is often strategically vague, which tends to serve the interests of powerful entities.Boerboom and his contributors critique the language of food-based messages and examine how such language—including idioms, tropes, euphemisms, invented terms, etc.—serves to both mislead and obscure relationships between food and the resulting community, health, labor, and environmental impacts. Employing diverse methodologies, the contributors examine on a micro-level the textual and rhetorical elements of food-based language itself. The Political Language of Food is both timely and important and will appeal to scholars of media studies, political communication, and rhetoric.
