Book Review: Animal Dreams

Animal Dreams

Kingsolver, Barbara

Harper, 1990

An impressively vivid account of the social and environmental issues in the late 1980s from the perspective of a bright woman who just doesn’t fit into the mold anyone tries to make for her.  Central American refugees, US activity in Nicaragua, rural health care, grassroots environmental activism, teen pregnancy, education, Alzheimer’s, native American incorporation into society, single parent households……  all of it rolls together and leaves you emotionally tired but elated.
