Resumen:
Inspired by actual events that took place in upstate New York and Wisconsin in the mid-nineteenth century. --

"An enjoyable read that will stir the thoughts of even the most hard-hearted."--John Oncken, Capital Times --

"Charming...Apps, who was born on a farm and who managed a pickle factory in the 1950s, invests the novel with the kind of realism, precise detail, and local color that only someone who had lived the story could do."--Booklist --

"Jerry Apps unravels a family secret that arcs across three generations and delivers a surprising answer for one descendant."--Philip Hasheider, contributing author to seasons on the farm --

"The trials and tribulations of the fictional Starkweather farm entertain and educate readers on the battle between traditional, sustainable family farming and encroaching agribusiness and real estate development."--Wisconsin Trails --

The fourth novel in Jerry Apps's Ames County series, Cranberry Red brings the story into the present, portraying the challenges of agriculture in the twenty-first century. --

As the novel opens, Ben Wesley has lost his job as agricultural agent for Ames County. He is soon hired as a research application specialist for Osborne University, a for-profit institution that has developed "Cranberry Red," a new chemical that promises not only to improve cranberry crop yields but also to endow the fruits with the power to prevent heart disease, reduce brain damage from strokes, and ward off Alzheimer's disease. Ben must promote the new Product to cranberry growers in Ames County and beyond, but he worries whether the promised results are credible. Was Cranberry Red rushed to market? --

When the chemical does all that the university claims it will do, Ben is relieved...until disturbing side effects emerge. Can he criticize Cranberry Red and safeguard farmers and consumers without losing his job, or will Ben's honesty get him fired while putting his community at risk? --Book Jacket.  Leer más
