Vermont Afternoons with Robert Frost, by Vrest Orton

    In this testament to their extensive friendship that was developed and lived out primarily in the peaceful Vermont setting, Vrest Orton, a Vermont native, recounts his relationship with fellow Vermont-adorer, Robert Frost. The book includes letters from Frost to Orton, one of which starts with the line: "Sometime in the fall when the flood of summer people has subsided, you and I will be left still clinging to the rocks of Vermont." 
    A book that reads almost as smoothly and evocatively as a Frost poem, it is a beautiful way to get to know the true feel of Vermont, as well as to get a glimpse into the lives and shared times of two extraordinary men.
