MEDIA REVIEWS
"As an introduction to Vermont history and politics and agriculture, readers would be advised to pick up The Vermont Encyclopedia, the first such comprehensive reference work in more than 70 years. It's an elegantly produced and written volume--more than 1,000 entries written by 140 contributors--that covers a good deal of ground, from agriculture to the arts to manufacturing to town histories to such idiosyncratic personalities as Hetty Green, the Witch of Wall Street, Champ, Lake Champlain's purported denizen of the deep, and of course, Fred Tuttle."--Valley News
"Duffy, Hand, and Orth and 141 other contributors offer a comprehensive, accurate, reasonably priced, readable compilation devoted to all aspects of the most rural and one of the most liberal states. Seventy illustrations and an easy-to-read three-column format enhance the volume."--Choice
"Anyone with an interest in the state of Vermont and its past will welcome The Vermont Encyclopedia. There has never been a compact reference book about Vermont at once as comprehensive and accessible as this volume . . . Samuel B. Hand's essay on Vermont's history is the best concise survey of the subject that I have read."--Vermont History
"The Vermont Encyclopedia, the first comprehensive history of the state in nearly 70 years, manages to compile nearly all pertinent facts about Vermont in a single volume. Furthermore, unbelievably, it makes for excellent reading . . . it can be dipped into easily by young adults, or digested by scholars."--Vermont Sunday Magazine
