The Last of the Prune Pickers

Tim Stanley’s The Last of the Prune Pickers was published in 2009 and emphasizes his family history with prunes in Saratoga.

Several other authors have covered various fruits. In 1984, Yvonne Jacobson wrote “Passing Farms: Enduring Values”. Jacobson’s book, in my opinion, is better written. It is more cohesive and the personal narratives are better integrated with the other themes.

In 2013, Robin Chapman published “California Apricots – The Lost Orchards of Silicon Valley”, that emphasizes her family history with apricots in Los Altos. Chapman’s book, in my opinion, is better written. It is more cohesive and the personal narratives are better integrated with the other themes.
