Indian Orchard

Famous quotes containing the words indian and/or orchard:

    Well, that’s a nice social problem—an Indian in the family.
    Howard Estabrook (1884–1978)

    Some spring the white man came, built him a house, and made a clearing here, letting in the sun, dried up a farm, piled up the old gray stones in fences, cut down the pines around his dwelling, planted orchard seeds brought from the old country, and persuaded the civil apple-tree to blossom next to the wild pine and the juniper, shedding its perfume in the wilderness. Their old stocks still remain.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
