Heirlooms: Letters from a Peach Farmer
By David Mas Masumoto. Illustrations by Doug Hansen.
Following in the footsteps of Letters to the Valley: A Harvest of Memories, writer and farmer David Mas Masumoto dispenses his earthy wisdom and humor on the “other California,” a place where family homesteads endure despite the looming threat of development.
With subjects as varied as the cool shade of porches to the sacrifices of care giving to the memories of seasons past, Masumoto eloquently makes a case for a way of life that has enriched America's heartland for generations.
