About this product
- DescriptionFor the past several years, on a farm rth of San Francisco, the celebrated writer Alice Walker has diligently cared for a flock of chickens. Over time, her blossoming relationship with her girls became a source of inspiration, strength, and spiritual discovery, and helped Walker connect more profoundly with her own past as a girl in rural Georgia. Walker has recorded this journey in <i>The Chicken Chronicles, </i> an extraordinary document of personal discovery, political commitment, and the joys of relating toanimals. Each of Walker's thirty-eight chronicles addresses her girls directly, sometimes from the intimate proximity of her yard, other times at a great distance, from her journeys to Bali and Dharamsala as a witness and activist for peace and justice. By turns uplifting and heartbreaking, <i>The Chicken Chronicles</i> is a new treat for Walker fans, a powerful touchstone for anyone seeking a deeper connection with the natural world, and a celebration of chickens everywhere!
