Summary

Summary

An examination of the natural, environmental, social and ultimately human history of Vermont. The author 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.
