This book would be good to use in a environmental class because of the issues they address. This book brought back memories of my childhood of when we had a garden and canned some of our vegetables. This is very useful for anyone who is interested in the environment and looking to make changes.

Spreading the word
This is a wonderfully written, warm book. Hopefully lots of fans of Kingsolver's fiction will read this book. I personally like it a lot better than her well known fiction. It is factually correct and really addresses the issues surrounding sustainable agriculture in a personalized as well as universal way. She makes subtle considerations easily understandable and assimilated and entertains while she is doing it. Well done! Read this book - it will really draw you in!
