Rage In The Hills is a collection of short stories which attempts to portray what happened to the native Vermont culture after waves of wealthy "flatlanders" arrived. The stories primarily cover the culture clash in this rural state between the old time farmers who have recently lost their farms because of expensive government dairy farming regulations and the recently arrived "flatlanders" who buy up the farm property on which to build expensive homes.
These stories are about the clash of pastoral intellectual outsiders ideals with Vermonters rural independent values. These stories are about the RAGE quietly dotting the hillsides along with the twisted old apple orchards and the occasional herd of Scottish Highlanders.
