The Ghost Orchard presents a pensive, subtly melancholy lead-in to the life and times of those who trek through the realm of apples, which includes the author Helen Humphreys. If you're of a solitary bent, looking to fill the day with something to do in a coherent context, then exploring the nooks and crannies of our varied landscapes in search of the historical treasure that apple trees comprise ought to be considered as an option. This book could unlock the hidden pomology gene that may reside within you. Imagine stumbling upon an apple deemed extinct: Anti-Know-Nothing, Front Door, Sweet Seeknofurther, Trippe's Railroad, Turn-off Lane ... Finally, the book illustrations are exquisite.
