Overview

For many Americans, Vermont still seems what the United States at least in myth once was—a bucolic landscape of wooded hills, neat farms, and handsome villages—before modern forces transformed our agrarian nation into an urban-industrial giant.
Vermonters have long been respected as sturdy Americans who prize hard work, honest dealing, town-meeting government, and dry humor. Their way of life, along with the beauty of their Green Mountains and quiet valleys, remains immensely attractive to natives and newcomers who seek beauty and the satisfaction of self-sufficiency in a natural environment where rocky soil and a varied climate have always compelled respect.
