h4. From the publisher

First conceived as a short magazine article about oranges and orange juice, this nonfiction classic explores the botany, history, and industry of oranges. Oranges contains sketches of orange growers, orange botanists, orange pickers, orange packers, early settlers on Florida's Indian River, the first orange barons, modern concentrate makers, and a fascinating profile of Ben Hill Griffin of Frostproof, Florida, who may be the last of the individual orange barons.
