Praise

“These literate glimpses of rural America make good stand-alone chapter reads: raising chickens, meeting reticent New England neighbors, marveling at the mysterious USDA pamphlets or the Sears, Roebuck catalog, journeying to the Dartmouth library, etc…This volume will be of special regional and historical interest as well as of general interest in public libraries where anecdotal essays are popular.” —Booklist

“The Zuckmayers’ courage and strength is an inspiration to all who may be set in unfamiliar surroundings, even in their own country.” —Publishers Weekly

“The book offers readers an interesting historical perspective of Vermont during the war years, as well as an inspiring narrative on the indomitable human instinct to survive….The contemporary reader will come away feeling inspired by the Zuckmayers’ perseverance and with renewed gratitude for all of the amenities (like heat) which we now take for granted.”  — Jennifer Falvey, Vermont Standard

“Part memoir, part diary, part fascinating account of rural life in 1940s Vermont…these are things that haven’t changed at all in the last century in Vermont…The sounds an old post-and-beam farmhouse makes when it gets cold, for instance, or the way the snowplow rattles the windowpanes at 4am….” —Emily Abroad Blog
