Field Days

We read a lot of books about food at our house, listen to a lot of stories about food on the radio, and watch a lot of films about food.

Recently we read Field Days, which I would say is among the very most edifying and enjoyable of all such works. It is an almost lyrical description of the author's year immersed in small-scale agriculture in Sonoma, California. I recommend my favorite librarian's recent review of Field Days, and I recommend reading this book as an affordable gift to one's self.
