By Pete Brown

If you’re not already aware of the apple’s cultural and agricultural significance to mankind, that’s OK. If you thought you were knowledgeable on the subject, that’s OK, too. In his latest book, the masterful Pete Brown tackles the apple and all it’s done and all it means. A lively first-person romp through orchards and fairs over a year of planting, harvesting and processing. No matter your apple knowledge, you’ll finish this book with a greater appreciation.
