Vanishing Vermonters: Loss of a Rural Culture


“Vanishing Vermonters: Loss of a Rural Culture”, is the newest and most important of Peter’s five books on his home state. He recorded 23 Vermonters on how they cope in one of the most expensive states in the Union. Includes 168 pages and 91 photographs that display life in Vermont rather than its iconic beauty.

This book came about due to the number of letters and emails Peter received after writing a short history of the changes he’d noticed while photographing Vermont between 1950 and 2013. “Vanishing Vermonters” and “Lifetime of Vermont People” are two books that should be on the coffee tables of every Vermonter.

1st edition, 2017, 8 ½ x 11, 168 pages, with 93 black and white photographs including portraits of the Vermonters interviewed and photos of Vermont as it is.
