Apples, ho! Sink your teeth into this hilarious tall tale that’s loosely based on the life of a real fruiting pioneer in this ebook with audio.

When Papa decides to pull up roots and move from Iowa to Oregon, he can’t 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 there’s a river to cross that’s wider than Texas...and then there are hailstones as big as plums...and there’s even a drought, sure to crisp the cherries. Those poor pippins! Luckily Delicious (the nonedible apple of Daddy’s eye) is strong—as young ‘uns raised on apples are—and won’t let anything stop her father’s darling saps from tasting the sweet Oregon soil.

Apple Facts:
More than 7,500 varieties of apples are grown throughout the world.
About 2,500 varieties grow in the United States.
The apple variety Delicious is the most widely grown in the United States.
Apples are part of the rose family.
The science of fruit growing is called pomology.
Fresh apples float. That’s because 25 percent of their volume is air.
Cut an apple in half, across the core, and you’ll see a star shape.
It takes apple trees four to five years to produce their first fruit.
It takes about thirty-six apples to make one gallon of apple cider.
