    The book that launched a worldwide revolution in the way we think about and consume food. Vancouverites Smith and MacKinnon begin talking about where the food they eat comes from, and how far in food-miles items have traveled. They somewhat naively agree to eat nothing but food that comes from within 100 miles of their home for one year. An interesting experiment begins that tests their relationship, resiliency and patience, but the story is completely captivating. These two have done more for the environment and small farmers through this experiment and book than one could ever imagine. A great read and a great way to live (with a little flexibility of course!)
