- Barbara Kingsolver, from Barbara Kingsolver: The Authorized Site
Probably most widely known for her fictional best seller The Poisonwood Bible, Barbara Kingsolver has also made a name for herself in the world of environmentalism. Her deep respect and her desire to understand our world are apparent in her first work of non-fiction, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life. With her characteristic spirit and tenacity, Kingsolver demonstrates her appreciation for all that is fresh and local. I for one am extremely grateful that Ms. Kingsolver has such talent for putting this passion and knowledge into such a readable language.
