Vermont is one of the most photographed of the fifty states. Bordered on the east by the Connecticut River and on the northwest by Lake Champlain, famous for the spine of Green Mountains down its middle and its autumn colors and winter whites, Vermont is every photographer's dream. Because most books of Vermont photographs have focused almost exclusively on the state's stunning natural environment, they convey a landscape of great beauty in which, apart from the reliable changing of the seasons, not much happens.

Jon Gilbert Fox's photographs capture private moments of personal introspection, humor and sadness, the hardships and glories of work, leisure, and daily life. These images enlighten and delight through the subtle artistes of design, color, and theme. The volume begins with images of people at work and taking a moment of respite from their daily labors: house painters, sheep shearers, waitresses, farmers, and young field hands. Scenes of rickety porches, dilapidated post offices, and tired barns characteristic of Vermont's older communities complement soaring church steeples and a house at the rainbow's end. Animals central to Vermont's economy as well as to its domestic pleasures are featured prominently in these pages. 

With a rare combination of artistry and candor, sympathy and wit,  Fox's photographs bring us an unusual glimpse of a Vermont not easily accessible to outsiders.
