Independent study at Middlebury was the high point in my college and Middlebury experience. I did an independent study under the guidance of Howard Wooden on the life history and biology of Snowshoe Hares. It was done on a woodlot adjacent to the Robert Frost Cabin and I hiked and snowshoed past the Cabin 5 times a week gathering biological information and live trapping Snowshoes. A special place!! It led me to a career and studies in ecology. I am now in Brasil working on another independent study and publication of an instructional CD,DVD and book of the latin solo guitar arranging and playing of Carlos Barbosa Lima. Thanks Middlebury for the inspiration!!!
