When Papa decides to pull up roots and move from Iowa to Oregon, he cant bear to leave his precious apple trees behind. Or his peaches, plums, grapes, cherries, and pears. Oh, and he takes his family along too.
But the trail is cruel. First theres a river to cross thats wider than Texas, then there are hailstones as big as plums, and then theres even a drought, sure to crisp the cherries.
Luckily Delicious (the nonedible apple of Daddys eye) wont let anything stop her fathers darling saps from tasting the sweet Oregon soil. A hilarious tall tale from the team that brought you Fannie in the Kitchen thats loosely based on the life of a real fruiting pioneer.
