A sentimental remembering of life in the traditional Vermont general store in the early part of the 20th century

The general store was a social center in many towns; a source of news and gossip, as well as supplies. This book combines history, stories told by storekeepers, and photos for a fascinating account of this quintessential rural institution.

JANE C. BECK is author of several books including The Gulley. She is a graduate of Middlebury College with advanced degrees from the University of Pennsylvania, and she served as the Executive Director of The Vermont Folklife Center in Middlebury, Vermont.
