Nancy Price Graff, ed., Celebrating Vermont: Myths and Realities
(Hanover, NH: University Press of New England, 1991). The essays compiled in this book examine the historical basis for the many and often conflicting myths about our state and provide fascinating background on daily life and social and political movements during different periods of Vermont history. They are abundantly illustrated with pieces from the bicentennial exhibit at Middlebury College's museum, from pre-European petroglyphs to a Ben & Jerry's ice cream carton.
