    Joan Dye's Books

    Growing, Older

    A Chronicle of Death, Life, and Vegetables

    Michael Pollan calls her one of his food heroes. Barbara Kingsolver credits her with shaping the history and politics of food in the United States. And countless others who have vied for a food revolution, pushed organics, and reawakened Americans to growing their own food and eating locally consider her both teacher and muse.

    This Organic Life

    Confessions of a Suburban Homesteader

    Barbara Kingsolver calls This Organic Life "the most important book I've read in a long while." The memoir of one woman's quest to change the world by growing and eating her own food. Full of recipes, personal stories, and well-reasoned arguments for returning our diets to locally available, seasonal produce.
