This vintage book is a complete guide to growing fruit in arid locations, being an account of approved fruit-growing practices in the inter-mountain country of the western United States. Profusely illustrated and full of interest and invaluable information, this volume will appeal to modern American fruit growers, and would make for a great addition to collections of related literature. Contents include: “History and Development of the Fruit Industry”, “Daniel Webster’s Speech”, “Colorado’s Horticultural History”, “Location, Exposure, Soils, and Windbreaks”, “Altitude and Fruit-Growing”, “Eastern Slope Fruit Belt”, “Canon Breezes and Frost”, “Orchard Soils”, “Cement Soils”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive.
