About the Book

Apples, ho!

When Papa decides to pull up roots and move from Iowa to Oregon, he can’t bear to leave his precious apple trees behind. Or his peaches, plums, grapes, cherries, and pears. Oh, and he takes his family along too.

But the trail is cruel — first there’s a river to cross that’s wider than Texas…and then there are hailstones as big as plums…and there’s even a drought, sure to crisp the cherries.

Those poor pippins! Luckily Delicious (the nonedible apple of Daddy’s eye) is strong — as young ‘uns raised on apples are — and won’t let anything stop her father’s darling saps from tasting the sweet Oregon soil.

Here’s a hilarious tall tale — from the team that brought you Fannie in the Kitchen — that’s loosely based on the life of a real fruiting pioneer.
