THE YEAR OF THE GOAT 40,000 Miles and the Quest for the Perfect Cheese MARGARET HATHAWAY AND KARL SCHATZ
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 forty-three 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 every- thing 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.
Margaret Hathaway is a freelance writer and aspiring farmer. A former manager of the Magnolia Bakery in New York City, she is a founding member of the Portland Slow Food Convivium, as well as an active volunteer with the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association. She lives in Maine with her hus- band Karl, her daughter Charlotte, their dog Godfrey, and an ever-growing group of animals.
