Nearly 30 years after the publication of his landmark book, Vermont People, Peter Miller is once again sounding the alarm over what he considers the slow death of his state’s most important asset: its rural ethos. In Vanishing Vermonters, Miller showcases and celebrates the kinds of people and places that he’s identified with for most of his life. In this interview, he talks about the work that went into putting the new book together, as well as his career, his legacy, and the complicated relationship he has with Vermont and where he feels it’s headed.
