Join us for a meet and greet and book signing with Megan Price, the author of the phenomenally popular Vermont Wild series featuring tales from our state's fish and game wardens. Come in and have Megan personalize a copy of Vermont Wild for the hunter or wildlife-watcher in your life.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: A former award-winning journalist and Vermont legislator, Price has been called a "folklore artist" for her ability to breathe life into little known, true tales of the Green Mountains as told by those who lived them. "The books are a working man's history" Price said. "The stories combine history, humor, conservation, danger and courage. These men are independent Yankees. They work alone in the woods. Everyone has a gun. The weather can be atrocious and they're still out there. Their stories make for great literature."
Price gives credit to the retired game wardens who share their adventures with her, putting their names and photos in the books. "I'm always looking for more wardens, more deputies, more good stories, from any state. I want to save good stories and share them. I hope people will stop by and pass along a name of a retired game warden or deputy with good stories if they know someone," she added. "The older fellows tend to have the best stories! And I'm interested in hearing from wardens from every state."
ABOUT THE BOOKS: Whether confronting moose, rescuing raccoons, training reluctant tracking dogs or searching for clues to catch clever poachers, Price's true tales of our North Woods resonate with all ages, tourists as well as Vermont natives. The "Wild" books are taken to hunting camp, taught in middle and high schools to encourage children to read and write their own stories, read out loud in nursing homes and mailed world wide to those who love Vermont.
To date, there are five Vermont Wild books and one Maine Wild, all chock full of game warden's true stories.
