Overview

Noel Perrin’s delightful account of building a sugarhouse and making maple sugar in Vermont first appeared twenty years ago. Like a sturdy New England farmhouse, Perrin has added to it over the years to reflect his subsequent sugaring experiences, and includes in this latest edition a “postpostpostscript.” His celebration of simple, hard work to produce a “quite wonderful, maybe even sacred article” has not been diminished by plastic tubing, thrip infestations, and the strange new market for Vermont sap water.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Perrin understands the poetry of living . . . A slower paced world comes alive. Loggers, sawmasters, farmers, Vermont countrymen of all sorts meander through the book commenting on sugaring and life . . . Marvelously written.”—Nashville Tennessean
