America’s Apple is now available as an e-book, and can be purchased online at Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, and through a number of independent bookstores (check with yours to see if it is listed). The e-book, which sells for $9.99, will soon be available on Apple products, too.
America’s Apple is a comprehensive guide to America’s apples as well as the people who grow them, following the fruit from orchard to marketplace to table. The book features nearly 50 color photographs by Bar Lois Weeks, plus a photographic index of 120 apple varieties grown in the United States.
The book re-examines the legacy of John Chapman, aka Johnny Appleseed, and describes dozens of heirloom apples. Chapters on culinary uses and apple drinks include some of the author’s favorite recipes.
Russell Steven Powell has worked in the New England apple industry for the past 16 years. He is the former publisher of New England Watershed Magazine, and produced the documentary video program Shack Time, about the artist shacks in the dunes of the Cape Cod National Seashore.
The hardcover edition of America’s Apple can also be purchased online at Silver Street Media, and is available at a number of orchards and bookstores.
