In my quest to read every book ever written about sustainability, I recently read Catherine Friend's The Compassionate Carnivore.
The book was well written. But after reading Michael Pollan's The Omnivore's Dilemma, there wasn't much new to me material. However, what I did enjoy were her stories of living on a farm with her partner, Melissa. So I was delighted to find out that Friend had written a book on that subject: Hit By A Farm: How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love The Barn.
Hit By A Farm is part love story, part coming of age story and part laughter as medicine. I highly suggest you get yourself a copy.
