Taming the Maine Wild Lowbush Blueberry

by Walter Staples

Blueberryland Blueberryland began as a compilation of unusual circumstances, anecdotes, and stories from the author's personal experience during a period of twenty years of managing a relatively small blueberry farm. It has become a description of an intimate association with the people and the land of the small town of Wesley in Washington County, Maine, a town not unlike every other blueberry growing town in the state.

Blueberryland gives a true taste of Maine. Walter Staples gives a wholistic view of the love affair with blueberries which he shares with the residents of his native state Maine. He does this in a wonderfully readable way by mingling personal stories, and facts and figures provided by the Maine Cooperative Extension Service, with recipes for treats such as; Wild Blueberry Bundt Cake, Wild Blueberry Cobbler, Blueberry-Apple Jelly, and Wild Blueberry Muffins.
