Sally van Gent wonders how to utilise the beautiful land of Clay Gully. Goats? A vineyard? Remembering the sweet fruit she ate as a child she decides to establish a heritage apple orchard. She sets to work - and soon enough, rains falter, bugs, birds and feral animals attack the trees, and a snake takes refuge in the leg of her jeans. As the drought takes its toll and animals in the surrounding bush begin to suffer, Sally fights to keep her orchard alive.
'Sally van Gent's charming story of life on the land with all its challenges is enhanced by her whimsical drawings, heartwarming stories of family, dogs and wildlife, and delicious recipes.' - Denise Gadd, gardening writer
