About this Item

233 pages. Illus., DJ slightly worn and soiled. Signed by the author. A lyrical, sensuous and thoroughly engrossing memoir of one critical year in the life of an organic peach farmer. The book follows Masumoto's yearlong attempt not just to keep his Sun Crest peaches alive but to farm a new way, working with, and not against, nature. It seems clear to him from the start that "this year will decide my fate.". Bookseller Inventory # 54510
