Epitaph for a Peach: Four Seasons on My Family's Farm by David Mas Masumoto

David Mas Masumoto is a peach farmer and peach poet. His Sun Crests, "one of the last truly juicy peaches," are decreed obsolete by brokers serving a public prepared to sacrifice taste for shelf life. Epitaph chronicles his last-ditch effort to squeeze out a living on his terms, with his peaches. He is no abstract romantic; he lives every day in the realities of unpredictable growing conditions and market vagaries. He is also a stubborn, pragmatic lover. Whether those qualities can finally save his way of life is still unclear, but they offer the best hope that not all family farming stories will conclude as epitaphs.
