MIDDLEBURY, Vt. — The only way to get a clear understanding of Vermont today is to look at the geological, biological, and cultural forces that have shaped the state over time. That’s the goal of the newly published second edition of The Story of Vermont: A Natural and Cultural History by Professor of Biology and Environmental Studies Stephen Trombulak and Professor of Public Policy, Political Science, and Environmental Studies Christopher McGrory Klyza.

The book documents numerous changes in Vermont’s natural and cultural landscapes since the first edition was published in 1999. Among the changes is an increased awareness about the consequences of climate change, especially after the damaging tropical storm Irene.

The two professors were featured guests on Vermont Public Radio’s “Vermont Edition” with Jane Lindholm on Tuesday, February 3.
