This enthusiastic and practical guide describes raising strawberries, brambles (raspberries, blackberries, and hybrids), blueberries, grapes, and minor crops such as gooseberries , cranberries, and elderberries.  Particular attention is given to growing conditions in the eastern and Midwestern states, with detailed methods for pest control, pruning, and controlling crop size.  The author cautions, “Each crop has a story,” and it is easier to lose a fortune in berry crops than to make one, so long-term investment includes management and hands-on attention, whether you have a few plants or thousands.284 pages.
