If you love the woods and rural life, read this book. It is a wonderful, readable examination of the complex relationship between the people and the environment in northern New England. Conservationists, loggers, christmas tree growers, paper companies, ecologists, hunters, and sportsmen are all portrayed in a balanced and genuine manner. The often controversial issues are dissected and common ground found. A great account of an incredible place and its people.

This moving story, set in and around colonial Deerfield, MA., won the National Book Award for history as well as the Francis Parkman and Ray Allen Billington history prizes. In 1704, a French and Indian war party attacked the settlement of Deerfield, killing many inhabitants and capturing a minister, John Williams, and his five children. Most of the Willams family was eventually released, but Eunice Willams chose to remain with her captors, even converting to Catholicism and marrying a Mohawk tribesman. Despite the Williams's attempts to convince her to return to her family, she refused. This outstanding book examines the cultural and religious barriers that separated most colonial peoples, and the tumult caused by those who crossed them. ~ Reviewed by Louise Jones

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.
