Once a primarily agrarian state, Vermont is now a well-known tourist destination. Many visitors fall in love with its abundant ski slopes, picturesque small towns, and stunning vistas. The first U.S. state that was not part of the original 13 colonies, Vermont was a proud independent republic for many years, and the state retains its sense of independence in the present day. It has consistently embraced progress, and was the first state to outlaw slavery. With numerous historic and modern photographs, informative sidebars, timeline, and fact sheet, this engaging book will teach readers about Vermont's geography, history, government, and economy. Biographical sketches also introduce readers to some of the state's most notable inhabitants.
