These are stories in their own language and graphic descriptions. No expletives have been deleted in the belief that any child that can read, and many that cannot have already heard them if indeed they are not allowed to use them in polite company".and, further on, "Most of the incidents recorded here occurred in the latter half of the 20th century. Many of the principals have gone to their reward, but they should be remembered as the philosophers and movers and shakers during their lives." Clean, bright copy.

Hardcover. Thistle Hill Publications & Vermont Folklife Center, 1st, 2001, Book: Very Good, Dust Jacket: Very Good, Hardcover in a bright dust jacket, 108 pages, 68 b&w photographs. Granite and Cedar represents an unusual collaboration between a documentary photographer and a writer of fiction to produce a haunting portrait of the people and the land of Vermont's most rural area, often referred to as the "Northeast Kingdom." Veteran photographer JOHN M. MILLER uses his brilliant collection of elegiac, but unsentimental, images dating from the 1970s to evoke the disappearing folkways, the rugged people, and the desolate and abandoned landscape of his native corner of the Green Mountain State. 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 they emphasize the stark beauty of the land, they also pay homage to the innate dignity and fierce pride of the people who live in such hardscrabble circumstances.
