Photographer Victor Salvo and writer Ken Hall, aka Quill Gordon, collaborate to muse upon the muddle Hurricane Irene bequeathed to Vermont.
Sitting comfortably in Naples, Florida, where he now calls home, Salvo was delighted that the hurricane had turned north, thinking to himself that Irene was not going to effect him. Once again, he was sadly mistaken. Facebook pages and videos showed unthinkable damage to a most wonderful little state. The kicker was an image of a road, the road that had held his last known Vermont address, with a twelve foot drop and a river raging through it. And so fragile tenderheart returned to photograph the tough Vermonters. Warning: This book contains elements of humor amongst the wreckage. And one image that has nothing whatsoever to do with Irene, nor beavers.
