This is a basic guide to wildlife viewing areas, not to wildlife. After an introduction to Vermont and viewing tips, the guide divides the state into four areas: southern, central, Northeast Kingdom and northwest lake. It then lists the wildlife viewing sites by area. Each site shows icons for wildlife, facilities and recreation, a site description, viewing information, excellent directions, closest town, ownership and size. Photographs and illustrations add interest and information.

In this book you will read about the visionaries, the hard workers, the legends, the hikers, and the trail angels who made, and make, the AT what it is.
