Everyone needs to read this book. It was one of the best book that I have read in a long time. The book was written by Barbara Kingsolver and was about her pledge to eat only food grown locally for one entire year. There were also parts of the book written by Camille her daughter and her husband Steven. The family of four all made this pledge together. They had a huge garden and froze and canned lots of their own food in order to make it the entire year. Barbara baked her own bread, made her own cheese and yogurt. The story was very inspirational and I don't want to give away the ending but it was a must read for sure. I'm thinking about doing this same pledge myself not for an entire year but from June to September when there is an abundance of local food available in Connecticut.
