Aside

The Invention of Johnny Appleseed essay is the lead piece in the Fall 2012 issue of the Antioch Review

To be released in late October

My essay about the emergence of the Johnny Appleseed myth is the lead essay in the Fall 2012 issue of the Antioch Review, out this month.  Excerpted from the final chapter of Johnny Appleseed and the American Orchard, it examines the changing meanings and uses of the Johnny Appleseed story from the late 19th century up to the present.  My advance copy arrived this week. It should be on its way to subscribers, and available at fine bookstores, very soon.  For updates, check out the Antioch Review website.
