Rounds of chèvre and their animal counterparts, goats, may be acquired tastes; however, Kessler makes working with both sound delicious. He paints a poetic picture of living with goats, drawing on personal anecdotes, historical and biblical lessons, and specific journal entries. His voice is reminiscent of Walt Whitman: His writing a mix of sentences to savor and brutal truth. Both funny and touching, readers may find themselves wishing for a goat farm of their own. This book is also a must for lovers of Barbara Kingsolver’s, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle.
