He recalls the dinner at grower Neal Newsom’s B & B that’s the final chapter’s focal point.

Fellow grower Jet Wilmeth, whose High Plains vineyards in Tokio has been battered at one time or another by every form of hostile weather imaginable, stood to say grace on a spring evening when a freeze loomed ominously in the forecast.”Dear Lord,” Wilmeth prayed, “thank You for this day and thank You for this gathering of our families and friends. Bless us all. We could use a little rain, but, most of all, please keep the frost away. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.”

Kane writes, “As only a farmer’s inner strength can convey, there was no doubt the fate of this year’s harvest was in the hands of a greater being.”
