About this title:
About the Author: Emery was born in Eastern Pennsylvania to a family with deep agricultural roots. Logan Emery Sr., Lewis (Mike) Emery, and Hazel (Emery) Alexander regaled Mike with their stories of growing up on the large family farm of C. Ralph and Rachel (Umble) Emery in northeastern Chester County. They weren't fruit farmers, but every farm family had a few apple trees. Mike's great grandfather, Ralph, made cider. A great grandmother, Elizabeth Diem, continued to make apple butter into old age. Mike prides himself on his prowess as a baker of apple pies, which he makes using ancestral redware pie plates, with time blackened bottoms. Richman was born in New York City and summered in New York's Catskill Mountains. In the City he became familiar with the decorative labels on fruit crates when he went with his mother and grandmother to do their fruit and vegetable shopping at the outdoor stands and pushcarts of Prospect Place in Brooklyn. In the Catskills he ate apples from trees along country roads, picked wild strawberries and blueberries and actually tended a small orchard apple, pear, plum, cherry, and peach at his family's home in Woodbourne, New York. He also became cast under the spell of nursery catalogs a lifetime intoxication. He holds a compote of fruit made from Italian Majolica a tin-glazed earthenware.
