Sourced from Better World Books:

In her new essay collection, the beloved author of High Tide in Tucson brings to us, out of one of history's darker moments, an extended love song to the world we still have.

Whether she is contemplating the Grand Canyon, her vegetable garden, motherhood, genetic engineering, or the future of a nation founded on the best of all human impulses, these essays are grounded in the author's belief that our largest problems have grown from the earth's remotest corners as well as our own backyards, and that answers may lie in both those places.

Sometimes grave, occasionally hilarious, and ultimately persuasive, Small Wonder is a hopeful examination of the people we seem to be, and what we might yet make of ourselves.

One of my favourite authors - you do know how to spoil me my friend.

I have been reading this book on and off for a couple of years now! Started it before re-decorating the bathroom, and it somehow got lost ... Luckily it appeared again.
Therefore, I do not really remember the first essays. The latter ones though.... I really enjoy Kingsolver's critical and witty pen. She manages to highlight important aspects in our society, particularly the American way of living. I may actually use extracts from this book with my students.
I'll keep hold of the book for some time, as I would like to reread parts of this.
Very enjoyable book.
