Description
An American classic, The Orchard Keeper is the first novel by one of America's finest, most celebrated novelists.nbsp;nbsp;Set is a small, remote community in rural Tennessee in the years between the two world wars, it tells of John Wesley Rattner, a young boy, and Marion Sylder, an outlaw and bootlegger who, unbeknownst to either of them, has killed the boy's father.nbsp;nbsp;Together with Rattner's Uncle Ather, who belongs to a former age in his communion with nature and his stoic independence, they enact a drama that seems born of the land itself.nbsp;nbsp;All three are heroes of an intense and compelling celebration of values lost to time and industrialization.
