Product Description:

For many Americans, Vermont still seems what the United States at least in myth once was--a bucolic landscape of wooded hills, neat farms, and handsome villages--before modern forces transformed our agrarian nation into an urban-industrial giant.

Vermonters have long been respected as sturdy Americans who prize hard work, honest dealing, town-meeting government, and dry humor. Their way of life, along with the beauty of their Green Mountains and quiet valleys, remains immensely attractive to natives and newcomers who seek beauty and the satisfaction of self-sufficiency in a natural environment where rocky soil and a varied climate have always compelled respect.

Product Description:
In this second edition of their classic text, Klyza and Trombulak use the lens of interconnectedness to examine the geological, ecological, and cultural forces that came together to produce contemporary Vermont. They assess the changing landscape and its inhabitants from its pre-human evolution up to the present, with special focus on forests, open terrestrial habitats, and the aquatic environment. This edition features a new chapter covering from 1995 to 2013 and a thoroughly revised chapter on the futures of Vermont, which include discussions of Tropical Storm Irene, climate change, eco-regional planning, and the resurgence of interest in local food and energy production. Integrating key themes of ecological change into a historical narrative, this book imparts specific information about Vermont, speculates on its future, and fosters an appreciation of the complex synergy of forces that shaped this region.

This volume will interest scholars, students, and Vermonters intrigued by the state’s long-term natural and human history.

Product Description:

In this book Jan Albers examines the history -- natural, environmental, social, and ultimately human -- of one of America's most cherished landscapes: Vermont. Albers shows how Vermont has come to stand for the ideal of unspoiled rural community, examining both the basis of the state's pastoral image and the equally real toll taken by the pressure of human hands on the land. She begins with the relatively light touch of Vermont's Native Americans, then shows how European settlers -- armed with a conviction that their claim to the land was "a God-given right" -- shaped the landscape both to meet economic needs and to satisfy philosophical beliefs. The often turbulent result: a conflict between practical requirements and romantic ideals that has persisted to this day. Making lively use of contemporary accounts, advertisements, maps, landscape paintings, and vintage photographs, Albers delves into the stories and personalities behind the development of a succession of Vermont landscapes. She observes the growth of communities from tiny settlements to picturesque villages to bustling cities; traces the development of agriculture, forestry, mining, industry, and the influence of burgeoning technology; and proceeds to the growth of environmental consciousness, aided by both private initiative and governmental regulation. She reveals how as community strengthens, so does responsible stewardship of the land. Albers shows that like any landscape, the Vermont landscape reflects the human decisions that have been made about it -- and that the more a community understands about how such decisions have been made, the better will be its future decisions.

Product Description:
A Chronological History of Canaan describes the evolution of this town on the 45th parallel in northeastern Vermont. It is a picturesque community located on the Connecticut River and is bordered by New Hampshire and Quebec. Many people consider it to be the “real” Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. Its current population of 1,078 is primarily employed in the logging and manufacturing industries.
People in Canaan take pride in their independent nature and “can do” attitude. The myriad of activities (moose festival, soft ball tournaments, sugar on snow social, art in the park exhibit, historical society, parades, variety shows, dances, American Legion functions, church suppers, etc.) conducted by members of the community demonstrate that given a project they will successfully carry it out with a high degree of competence and professionalism.

Product Description:
The first book that peels back the Yankee mythos and examines the surprisingly rich, true story of the Irish in Vermont, from the first steady trickle of colonial pioneers to the flood of famine refugees and onward.  From Fort Ticonderoga to Civil War battlefields to up until the years after World War II: how the Irish arrived, survived, fought, labored, organized, worshipped, played, and managed to prosper . . . a surprisingly behind-the-scenes American success story that has never been fully told until now. 

6x9 50 photos and prints. Map. Chapter Notes. Bibliography. Index.

A meticulously researched, beautifully written book by the scholar who knows most about the Irish in Vermont. This long-awaited book fills a critical gap in Vermont studies, and is a model for future historians.
- Dona Brown, Associate Professor of History, University of Vermont,
author of Inventing New England: Regional Tourism in the Nineteenth Century.

In his carefully researched and meticulously referenced book, the author has provided both the serious and casual student of Vermont history with a fresh and engaging perspective on our ancestors that informs the literature as well as the reader.
- Deborah Doyle-Schechtman, writer, historian, and author of By the Old Mill Stream: A History of Quechee, Vermont

If it is true that we are not real until we are recorded in history, then this book makes the Irish in Vermont real. It is a must for all Irish Americans in Vermont, and for everyone else for that matter. It is all our story.
- Greg Delanty, Poet. St. Michael s College

Product Description:
Vermonters love all things local, so it is no surprise that the Green Mountain State has had a thriving craft beer scene for more than twenty years. Early Vermont brewers, though, faced many obstacles in bringing their beer to the thirsty masses, including a state-imposed prohibition beginning in 1852. Conditions remained unfavorable until Greg Noonan championed brewing legislation that opened the door for breweries and brewpubs in the 1980s. About the same time, beloved Catamount also began brewing, and Vermont's craft beer scene exploded. Years ahead of the rest of the country, local favorites like Hill Farmstead, Long Trail and Rock Art Brewing have provided world-class beers to grateful patrons. From small upstarts to well-recognized national brands like Magic Hat and Harpoon, Vermont boasts more breweries per capita than any other state in the country. With brewer interviews and historic recipes included here, discover the sudsy story of beer in Vermont.
