The Lost Orchards of Silicon Valley: Book Review
Robin Chapman's, California Apricots: The Lost Orchards of Silicon Valley, is a trip down memory lane for those of us who, like Steve Jobs, grew up among the apricot, prune, and cherry orchards of Santa Clara County.
Chapman takes a personal approach to telling the story of Santa Clara County's first settlers, the ranching industry that the orchard industry replaced, and the glory years of
Santa Clara County becoming the world's top apricot producer unlike anything "the world had ever seen."
"During the peak of the orchard business, there were almost twenty-four thousand individual farms and orchards in the Santa Clara Valley" says Chapman. "The number of apricot trees in California had increased from three million in 1914 to more than seven million by 1926."
