Sugar Words: Musings from an old Vermonter

Item #902

Writer Stephen Morris recently called Burr a "Renaissance Man, Green Mountain style".  And then there are the comparisons to Will Rogers and Garrison Keillor, but Burr much more prefers accolades like "connoisseur of crop failures" or "artist with a chainsaw".  In his latest book, Sugar Words: Musings from an Old Vermonter, he masterfully blends bits and pieces of local history, folksy hearsay, and memories from sixty-plus years on the farm.  Sugar Words: Musings from  an Old Vermonter is the best of Burr's three books so far...257 pages plus photo gallery.
