Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Taken from Chapter 16: The beautiful orchard Farmers were very proud of their orchards. After many years of hard work and patience the sight of the beautiful trees full of fruit was a wonderful reward. The tastes of the apples, cherries, peaches, pears, plums and quinces were even better!The young fruit tress had to be tended carefully. They were pruned or trimmed so that the branches grew evenly and the tree was wide rather than tall. The fruit from the trees that grew wild in the new country was small and bitter. If settlers did not bring saplings with them, they improved the wild fruit by experimenting in their orchards. This experiment was called grafting. Grafting means taking a branch or cion from one fruit tree and attaching it to the limb of a different tree. Some farmers were so skillful that they could draft plum branches onto a peach tree!

Review:

This series truly provides a delightful glimpse into the nineteenth century. The illustrations match the stories and are a visual reminder of life in another era. This series of fifteen books is ideal for both Canadian and U. S. pioneer life studies -- Library Materials Guide, Spring 1985
