I just finished this wonderful book from a fellow Quebecer.
Claude Jolicoeur has been creating cider (fermented) for over 30 years in zone 4 outside Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. He has a worldwide reputation and has been invited to present in conferences all over.
This book is a treasure:

His personal website contains a wealth of information including a fantastic blending tutorial and spreadsheet calculator:
This book gives you everything you could possibly need to know on how to grow and create awesome cider. He covers everything from basics to advanced. From the small backyard orchard with a couple trees to the small scale traditional orchard with full size trees to intensive commercial operations. He discusses tree and variety selection and has vignettists from invited cider experts from across North America providing their tips so that you can chose the information relevant to your growing area.
He then dicusses griders and presses ranging from plans for home-built presses to info and prices and suppliers for hobbies to commercial machines.
Then he goes into great details on blending, fermenting, racking, bottling and the like.
Really this book is your one stop resource to cider making.
