When a fellow historian described Elise Guyette's new book as "an extraordinary piece of detective work...the best picture to date of African American life in Vermont," he did not understate its worth. To rescue the story of three generations of Green Mountain State free black farmers, Guyette combed tax and estate records, journals, diaries, and other documents. Discovering Black Vermont is an exemplar of what a first-rate historian can accomplish against daunting odds.
