Every year, the American Horticultural Society (AHS) celebrates great gardening literature. This year, “The Melon” was selected for The National Book Award.
Amy Goldman’s personal commitment to growing and preserving heirloom melons, along with her clear expertise, pushed this book into the winner’s circle. “Meticulously researched, masterfully written, and beautifully illustrated, The Melon showcases the remarkable diversity within this group of delectable fruits. It was a joy to read,” said Campion. “The Melon warmed my soul the instant I opened the book,” said Holmes. “I was delighted to find a wealth of information accompanying the beautiful photography.”
