Vermont Icons: 50 Classic Symbols of the Green Mountain State (Icons) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Vermont is a place of natural wonder to visitors who ramble her byways during foliage season or schuss her slopes in winter; who fish her streams and rivers in spring; and who swim and sail her ponds and lakes and hike her hills in summer. Her little villages, clustered around quaint greens, the steeples of their churches poking skyward, and her lush pastures, grazing cows, and red barns, all embody the word bucolic. And her people, the Vermonters, are the ones who keep the woodstoves stoked, the stew bubbling, the cows milked, and the maple syrup flowing.

Profiled within these pages are fifty classic symbols of this extraordinary state, revealing little-known facts, longtime secrets, and historical legends. From back roads to Bag Balm, from fiddleheads to fall foliage, Vermont Icons offers up the inside story about the very things that help give this state its unique character.

Did you know that Vermont was the first state in the nation to initiate a full ban on billboard advertising? That the P&H Truck Stop makes some of the tastiest pie in America? That Snowflake Bentley hotographed more than 5,000 snowflakes in his lifetime? For Vermonters and visitors alike, Vermont Icons will be a treasured keepsake of this amazing state.

Synopsis:

Did you know that Vermont is the largest producer of maple syrup in the United States?  For all of the  residents, visiters, and syrup-lovers out there, Vermont Icons will highlight the many historic, natural, cultural, and social aspects of "The Green Mountain State."  From sites such as the Robert Frost Farm to the Shelburne Museum of Art, this book reveals the many treasures hidden in Vermont.  Readers will be delighted by the hundreds of full-color-photographs of the people, places, events, foods, animals, and traditions that make Vermont the state that it is.  Each chapter will captivate readers and entice them to take a walk, drive, plane, or train to at least one of the incredible features mentioned in this book. 

Synopsis:
