Price’s best-selling Vermont books are populated by zany warden encounters with ravenous bears, charging moose, hard-headed hunting dogs and countless wily poachers. Each book is a collection of short stories told by former conservation officers who patrolled the Green Mountains enforcing the law and protecting wildlife. Their adventures are occasionally harrowing but always have a humorous vein. The wardens must outwit fearsome critters and clever poachers to do their job. Price has been termed a “folklore artist” for her ability to ferret out woodsmen with great adventures and then write their stories in a way that make them entertaining reading for all ages. There’s no bad language or gratuitous violence in the stories and the books are used in schools by teachers and taken to hunting camp. “Everyone loves a good story and if the Green Mountains could talk, these are some of the stories they’d tell,” said Price. “The public’s appetite for Vermont Wild is really a tribute to these men and their hard work. With the help of caricaturist Bob Lutz, of Fairfax, also a retired game warden, “Vermont Wild, Volume One,” immediately became a runaway best seller at many Green Mountain bookstores and gift shops.

Haying has been almost impossible, with rain predicted almost everyday and high humidity, but third cutting needs to get put up. The Department of Agriculture’s Aug. 12 report will give the early yield estimates, while the private marketing firms are throwing out their best guesstimates before that report. Enjoy the last few days before the 2016-2017 school year begins. 4. Bill Gray, Tonica/Lostant For this past week I received 0.2 inches of rainfall. The corn and soybean crops continue to mature.
