Phoenix Books is thrilled to welcome back the Editorial team behind the creation and publication of Vermont Alamanc: Stories From & For The Land, Volume II for a discussion of their recently released second voulme of the invaluable resource.
About Vermont Almanac: “What is unique to Vermont’s sense of place has been captured in a new book that really must be added to any Vermonters’ book collection or coffee table. Vermont Almanac . . . is a beautiful compilation. It is breathtaking in its depth of advice and information. It is, in effect, How to Vermont. Broken down by month, it has something for everyone who loves the state.” – Barre-Montpelier Times Argus/Rutland Herald
The Almanac is organized by month and provides a year’s worth of stories, data, illustrations, and photography. Each beautifully bound edition records the prior year’s weather, trends in agriculture, changes in the forest, and developments in the rural economy. But each volume does more than look back; it also introduces readers to the people who inspire hope for the future of the land we all share. The farmers, loggers, conservationists, homesteaders, scientists, hunters – in short, the “doers” – who are preserving and pioneering a rural way of life in an increasingly urbanized culture.
This second volume features all new stories about and by a new cast of Vermont farmers, writers, loggers, artists, scientists, poets, thinkers, and doers. In all, more than 70 Vermonters contributed content to Volume II. With nearly 300 pages of content, there's something (many things, actually) for anyone. Garlic, ginseng, finches, flowers, cow-judging, apple-grafting, syrup-making, chicken-farming ... you get the point. It's a year's worth of content that's perfect for anyone who lives in or just loves rural Vermont.
About the Editors: Vermont Almanac is produced by For the Land Publishing, a non-profit organization. The editors — Virginia Barlow, Dave Mance III, and Patrick White — hail from different parts of Vermont and together have many decades of professional experience in forestry and farming, and nearly equal experience in writing and publishing.
