Description


Rolling green hills, cozy villages, covered bridges, maple trees--these are the images that have made Vermont. Residents and visitors alike appreciate Vermont for its old-time values that have steered clear of the modern world. Yet this image of Vermont has not come easily. Vermont's old-time values have been challenged, tested, adapted--and even consciously sculptured. Vermonters have shown great creativity and adaptability in preserving the past while admitting the new. Integral to Vermont's story of creativity are people like Ara Griggs, a one-man patrol who enforced state laws on 15,000 miles of roads. Or Gilbert Hastings, who put a toy whistle in every loaf to move bread off his grocery shelves. Or Philomene Daniels, who earned her steamboat pilot's license to help keep the family business afloat--and was the first woman to do so. Historic Photos of Vermont tells the story of the nation's 14th state in nearly 200 striking black-and-white photographs. Take this journey into the past and discover why Vermonters cherish the land they call home.
