ArborEATum by Evans Light

Arboreatum - Evans Light

 

This was a short novella that packed a punch.

A religious fanatic and his small group of followers move out west in the 1800's. On the verge of starving, they discover a small garden of Eden, guarded by two native Americans. To find out what happened from there, you'll have to read it. I will say that I will never look at my apple tree in the same way again. Recommended to fans of horrific short fiction!
