About halfway between Augusta and Belfast, 180 miles north of Boston, Palermo, Maine, is one of the typical New England towns where for ages nearly everyone lived on small diversified farms. Although Palermo has never been famous for its apple production, every farm had an orchard. Some consisted of just a dozen trees; others numbered a hundred or more. None were remotely as large as the commercial orchards of today. Still apples were ever-present in daily life for generations, and the varieties of apples grown in even such a small area could be surprising. Here John Bunker lovingly details the apples and orchards of Palermo in captivating words and pictures. Paperback 190 Pages
