The Apple Gatherer (Paperback)
"Farmers think all the harvest is in the fields," the Apple Gatherer tells the young narrator of this gentle tale of awakening to the glories of the natural world, "but that ain't the half of it. The woods, son. There's riches there in every season." And to prove it, he pulls from his pockets, shirt, and hat a dazzling array of such riches. In the end the young narrator gains a new appreciation not only of nature but of the passage of time.
An ideal introduction to the wonders of nature that so captivated the author of Walden, Henry David Thoreau, The Apple Gatherer will leave its young readers awestruck by the splendor and mystery that exist all around them.
