This delectable tale is a School Library Journal Best Book of the Year. Daddy has uprooted the family to move to Oregon-but not without his babies-apples, peaches, pears, plums, grapes, and cherries! Will Daddy's precious plants persevere? This tall tale is loosely based on a real life fruit pioneer who brought his fruit trees along on the Oregon Trail.
