Description:
Ohio, 1838. James and Sadie Goodenough have settled in the Black Swamp, planting apple trees to claim the land as their own. Life is harsh in the swamp, and as fever picks off their children, husband and wife take solace in separate comforts. James patiently grows his sweet-tasting 'eaters' while Sadie gets drunk on applejack made fresh from 'spitters'. Their fighting takes its toll on all of the Goodenoughs - a battle that will resonate over the years and across America.

Another brilliantly absorbing book from Tracy Chevalier! it is a rich, evocative tale spanning both the history of a pioneer family and America. This, like The Last runaway, is a book which meshes true historical events with literary imagination to evoke the pioneering spirit of 19th century America and the early years of plant hunting mania.
