Product Description:
Excerpt from The History of Vermont: From Its Earliest Settlement to the Present Time

In this series of cabinet histories, the authors, while presenting a concise but accurate narrative of the domestic policy of 'each state, will give greater prominence to the personal history of'the people. The dangers which continually hovered around the early colonists; the stirring romance of a life passed fearlessly amid peril; the incidents of border war fare; the adventures of hardy pioneers; the keen watchfulness, the subtle surprise, the ruthless attack, and prompt retaliation - all these having had an im portant influence upon the formation of the American character, are to be freely recorded. While the progres sive development of the citizens of each individual state from the rough forest-life of the earlier day to the polished condition of the present, will exhibit a pic ture of national expansion as instructing as it is inte resting.

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:
During America's Early Republic, the pastoral villages and forests of Vermont were anything but peaceful. Conflict raged along the Canadian border, as international tensions prompted Thomas Jefferson to ban American exports to France and Great Britain. Some Vermonters turned to smuggling. Federal seizure of a boat called the Black Snake" went deadly wrong--three men were killed that day, and another died later in the state's first hanging execution. The outbreak of the War of 1812 brought thousands of troops, along with drunkenness, disease and a general disregard of civil rights, including the imposition of extra-legal military trials. Using his extensive knowledge of the law, author Gary Shattuck sheds new light on this riotous era."

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:
Excerpt from The History of Jericho, Vermont

The sources of our information have been the Town Records, the Church Records, and the citizens of the town, especially the older generation, and information by them preserved. The proc ess of gathering this material has been slow, for busy men at least; that of verification even more tedious, yet of supreme im portance.

It is not always easy to spread traditions upon permanent records, nor yet to get just the truth out of the misty reports and tales passed from one generation to another.

Then again our vision may have been limited, and some really important matters may have been overlooked, because we are living in a different generation. We have endeavored to record what is true.

Fully one half the space in this volume has been devoted to genealogies or the history of the citizens of Jericho. These have been written by different writers, and in varying style, some con taining much of a biographical nature, and are often interspersed with incidents that have the effect of breaking up the monotonous succession of dates and other facts, and rendering family history readable and entertaining.

We sincerely wish that the number of illustrations could have been larger, but due thought and care have been exercised to select such scenes as will be appreciated for The Old Associa tions and Memories.

We desire, at this time, to express our appreciation to the numerous friends of the History, especially to the members of the General Committee and the Auxiliary Committee for their generous and able assistance. Several of the town's writers have furnished articles upon matters, of which they themselves are the best authority obtainable. It should be said, in this connec tion, that the excerpts from the Jericho Reporter, appearing in various parts of the volume, are principally from the pen of our associate editor, Mr. L. C. Stevens. Mr. L. F. Wilbur also, who began the practice of law in this town nearly 60 years ago, by reason of his intimate knowledge of the affairs of town, and his still more intimate acquaintance with the people, as well as by reason of a particularly retentive memory, has contributed much that is valuable to this History.

Product Description:
Vermont became the nation's second dry state in 1853. But some locals refused to comply, and inept law enforcement led to ineffective consequences. What was intended to increase wholesomeness forced a newly carved detour toward crime and corruption. Early laws, such as the Liquor Law of 1853, targeted distilled spirits while conveniently protecting cider. As regulations tightened, morals loosened. Without legalized booze, smugglers imported liquor from Canada, and bootleggers ensured that domestic speakeasies kept the liquor flowing. Crime ran so rampant that Newport, Richford and Lyndonville residents relocated to escape rum-running gangs. Join author Adam Krakowski as he discloses the tumultuous side of Vermont's temperance movement.

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.
