The People and the Land of Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom

By John M. Miller
Short fiction by Howard Frank Mosher

An unusual collaboration between a documentary photographer and a writer of fiction to produce a haunting portrait of Vermont’s most rural areas. Miller’s austere black-and-white photos richly detail the erosion and the breakup of the small farms of the region and of the families who worked those farms. While the images emphasize the starkness of the land, they also pay homage to the innate beauty and fierce pride of the people who live in such hard-scrabble circumstances.
