From the Back Cover:

In A View from Vermont, author Helen Husher examines everyday life in a place noted for its individuality and ingenuity - her home state of Vermont. With deep affection and understated humor, she explores her ongoing obsession: "the erratic heartbeat that propels the Vermont temperament." In this collection of engaging essays, Husher also reflects on issues common across America - the tensions between individual and community, natives and "people from away," tradition and change as seen through the lens of the Green Mountain State. Reaching beyond the cultural shorthand of tractors and plywood cows, she plumbs the complexities and comic depths of her fellow Vermonters. By celebrating her regional culture and its values, Husher sheds new light on this exceptional gift of we call "everyday life."

About the Author:

Helen Husher's stories and articles have appeared throughout New England. Kirkus Reviews praised her previous book, Off the Leash: Subversive Journeys Around Vermont, as "entertaining, well-written . . . [and] likely to inspire more than one vacationer to retrace her steps." She lives in Montpelier, Vermont.
