Oh my the dreaded one star review I must say I went into this book with high hopes and ended up uite disappointed It seems like a book I would love a couple around my age living in Vancouver and trying to spend one year living on only food that was grown or raised within 100 miles of their home In our society these days this is no easy task They have predictable adventures trying to find difficult to locate foods flour salt anything but potatoes in the winter etc but in the end the stories were mild and unamusing The couple takes turns writing one chapter after the other and although it is occasionally interesting to hear their differing takes on the same subjects neither of them possess the skill to keep the reader enthused and splitting the workload did nothing to solve that deficiency The book was crafted from a blog that the couple kept while practicing the 100 mile diet and it reeks of blog at every turn In fact the most interesting sections were ones that were not in their blog such as a sojourn for a month avail from friends computers and telephones in a cabin in the northern wilds of British Columbia There are recipes in the book as well Most of them would be impossible for me to create with ingredients from less than 100 miles away Go figure For a much better book on the same subject try Animal Vegetable Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver
