For the past several years, on a farm north of San Francisco, the celebrated writer Alice Walker has diligently cared for a flock of chickens. Over time, her blossoming relationship with her girls became a source of inspiration, strength, and spiritual discovery, and helped Walker connect more profoundly with her own past as a girl in rural Georgia. Walker has recorded this journey in The Chicken Chronicles, an extraordinary document of personal discovery, political commitment, and the joys of relating to animals.

Each of Walker's 38 chronicles addresses her girls directly, sometimes from the intimate proximity of her yard, other times at a great distance, from her journeys to Bali and Dharamsala as a witness and activist for peace and justice.

By turns uplifting and heartbreaking, The Chicken Chronicles is a new treat for Walker fans, a powerful touchstone for anyone seeking a deeper connection with the natural world, and a celebration of chickens everywhere!

    " Alice Walker's story of her chickens. I just can't get into reading a book where the author constantly refers to herself as their "mommy" "

    " This is Alice Walker’s account of a year in the life of her flock of chickens. But it’s also much more than that. Beautifully written, it’s a joy to read – a truly gorgeous little book. Very highly recommended. "

    " as someone who has developed a relationship with her chicken flock and gleaned many unexpected insights from them, i loved meeting alice walker and her 'girls' in this collection of stories. surely, she is a mother to many who have not yet met her. "

    " Although this book was not what I was expecting, I enjoyed some of the author's insights and the continued connection she reinforces with all life and people. A bit over-precious at times, but still fun and more amusing than I had thought a book about raising chickens might be. "
