The book does include recipes, but mostly it’s a collection of stunning and fascinating images with just enough info to make you feel that you’ve learned something.

The Wisconsin state fruit is the cranberry, which requires very special growing conditions. Host Larry Meiller interviews Wayne R. Martin to discuss his views of cranberries as art, the process of cultivating cranberries, and delicious recipes.

The book has received much press, such as coverage in the Green Bay Press Gazette, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Wisconsin State Journal (Madison, WI) and many other publications. Radio interviews include the Morning Magazine Show from Wisconsin Rapids, the Idea Exchange from Beaver Dam, WI.
