The bounty of information includes a history of apples in the United States and descriptions of more than 60 different kinds of apples with tips on harvesting, gardening,and deciding whether the apple is good for eating fresh or more useful if cooked, juiced, or dried. There is also information on how to grow an apple tree, even in small spaces, and a delicious recipe for apple pie. Written for novice and more experienced gardeners and apple lovers, this reasonably priced guide is a useful addition to any library.-Jennifer A.
