"With remarkably beautiful photographs and comprehensively researched texts Shenandoah Valley Apples by Scott Jost offers an in-depth look at the agrarian culture of apple-growing. Scott Jost's sensitive and masterfully constructed photographs of orchards take the viewer on a wonderful journey of discovery in the landscapes created by this time-honored tradition."
—John Ganis, Professor Emeritus and author of America's Endangered Coasts

"Scott Jost's book, Shenandoah Valley Apples, is brutally beautiful. His images carefully capture the color and character of this important industry and the remarkable people who continue in it today, but also the pathos of loss, as development, global forces, and shifting markets have literally uprooted the arboreal way of life that thrived in this region for over two centuries. I suspect many people will buy this book as a coffee-table piece—its images hauntingly juxtapose beauty and desolation, loss and hope—but it is also an important historical record, providing a significant look into this unique part of the Shenandoah Valley's agrarian history."
—Mark Metzler Sawin, Professor of History and Director of University Honors, Eastern Mennonite University
