Oversize trade paperback format.  A new Maine agriculture classic!  Gorgeously produced.  Tons of color illustration!

Written and illustrated by John Bunker.

John Bunker’s latest literary effort is hot off the press.  The “art of detection” is what Sherlock Holmes called his profession.  In John’s new book he channels his inner Sherlock as he searches through Maine’s past and present tracking down historic, unusual and occasionally illusive apple varieties and their stories.

Part travelogue, part mystery and part how-to manual this book will take you for a ride across Maine and leave you excited to start searching for and identifying the old apple trees in your own neighborhood.   Illustrated with hundreds of photos, as well as John’s signature cartoons and paintings of all the iconic Maine apples.  407 pages in full color.
