Gold Gato, December 20, 2011 (view all comments by Gold Gato)
Va-va-va-voom, this is one pretty book. I mean drop-dead gorgeous. To be honest, I didn't even have a garden when I saw this book. But the cover, the binding, and the drawings changed that.

That's right. This is a GAME-CHANGER BOOK.

The author highlights special varieties of fruits and provides quotes and historical information. Since I purchased this book, I have planted eleven fruit trees, so that should tell you something. And I am not a gardener, but now I read voraciously about soil and seeds and climate. Just because of a book that was sitting askew on a bookstore shelf. If I hadn't seen it, if I had just walked right on by, I could be spending my mornings and evenings watching the telly and getting fat. But no, this book has me out tilling the soil and creating life, while talking to people who walk by and ask 'what the heck kind of tree is that'? Game-changer.
