"We can all make this the best list ever, if everyone who has books offers lookups and we all respond and help each other . . . typical of those old Vermont farmers. When Great Grandpa was farming in East Montpelier at the turn of the century, all the farmers helped each other . . . when it was haying time . . . whole groups moved from one farm to another getting in the hay. The same thing for spring planting . . . and going into the woods to haul logs . . . all the younger men especially all pitched in and all got to know their neighbors . . . they could raise a barn in a day or two when someone's barn burned down . . . and if the neighbor lost livestock they'd send over a cow or two from each neighbor's farm . . . great way to live." -- A Subscriber to VERMONT-L
