Appleseed’s Progress

Small, lean-muscled, quick and restless; long of beard and hair; the eye, black sparkling; barefoot, cloaked in a burlap sack; tin pot and animal skin hatted; in doctrine, a Swedenborgian; in practice, a primitive Christian, moral and blameless; a settler of open spaces; neighbor to streams and loamy places; planter of trees, trader of seeds; missionary: Johnny Appleseed prepared the spirited wilds for civilization; a wilderness voice proclaiming, “prepare ye the way”.

Description

The screen-novella, Appleseed’s Progress (Volume III of “Eden to Ohio”) is a telling of some seven excellent Johnny Appleseed adventures not commonly known, yet true in the nature of such things.  You understand, true of stories, of myths and of legends, true in the words that live in our bones, in our souled minds transcendent and everlasting.  Here live apple-seed rich ideas, Johnny tellings by which we Americans realize ourselves in our self.
