Many people dream of leaving the workaday world for a life of simplicity and freedom, and Margaret Hathaway and her then-boyfriend Karl did just that. In Year of the Goat, the reader can jump in the "goat mobile" with them as they ditch their big-city lifestyle to trek across 43 states in search of greener pastures and the perfect goat cheese.
Along the way, the reader is introduced to a vivid cast of characters-including farmers, breeders, cheese makers, and world-class chefs-and learns everything there is to know about goats and getting back to the land. But readers beware: when it comes to goat cheese, it can be love at first bite.
