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:
The first history of the Green Mountain State's largest city, home of the state university, and commercial and retail center for a majority of Vermonters, and enjoyed by the Quebecois who live just across the Canadian border. It is a story that outlines the development of a small village nestled between a river and a lake that became one of New England's urban jewels: the economic 'engines' that nurtured the community; the various ethnic groups that settled in Burlington; and the political shifts that announced cultural changes. Burlington: A History of Vermont's Queen City provides the stories of the people, places, and events that resulted in the buildings, streets and neighborhoods of today. With 28 photographs, an 1898 city map, and extensive index.

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:

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:
Excerpt: ...now thrown aside his rapid pen, and, with a quick, light step and deeply-cogitating air, was traversing back and forth the open space between his table, in front of the president, and the closed door of the apartment. Both in form and feature, he was one of the handsomest men of his day; while a mind at once versatile, clear, and penetrating, with perceptions as quick as light, was stamped on his Grecian brow, or found a livelier expression in his lucid black eyes and other lineaments of his strikingly intellectual countenance. Such as he appeared for the first time on the stage of public action was the noted Ira Allen, whose true history, when written, will show him to have been, either secretly or openly, the originator, or successful prosecutor, of more important political measures, affecting the interests and independence of the state, and the issue of the war in the Northern Department, than any other individual in Vermont, making him, with the many peculiar traits of character he possessed, one of the most remarkable men of the times in which he so conspicuously figured. "I have finished, Mr. President," said Spooner, now breaking the gloomy silence which had, for an unusual interval, pervaded the assembly-"I have finished the despatch, suggested by your honor, requiring the attendance of the absent member from the east side of the mountain-General Bayley. And having put it into the form of a familiar letter, I have ventured to enlarge somewhat on our perplexing situation, especially in the matter of the miserable Squire Spencer, whose treasonable desertion I little dreamed, when I commenced writing, I should have the mortification of announcing." Footnote: The original letter from Paul Spooner to General Jacob Bayley, of Newbury, written in council, requiring the attendance of the latter, and informing him of Spencer's defection, and the gloomy situation of affairs, is still preserved, and affords, notwithstanding the disheartening news it...

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.
