In the enchanting world of apples, John Cheever brings to life the diverse characters and landscapes of New England. From the orchard of the kindly old Mrs. Tilton to the knotty orchards of the Cape, he brings to life the bounty and beauty of the region's fruit. Here are the stories of farmers and their families, of apple pickers and their carts, of cider makers and their mashes. Here are the stories of apples themselves, from the tart Granny Smith to the sweet Honeycrisp, from the hardy Rome to the delicate Snowball. And here, too, are the stories of the people who love apples--from the children who gather them in the fall to the farmers who grow them in the spring.; 8vo; FSA.
