(Ages 10 to Adult) Have you ever wandered through the woods and wondered who’d been there before? New England’s woods and wild places are full of stories: cannibalism in Vermont, Thoreau’s cold and lonely night on Mt. Greylock, an Eskimo in New Hampshire.

Based on the book by Alison O’Leary and Michael J Tougias, Hidden Gems of New England, takes audiences on virtual trips over mountains and through back roads of Vermont, New Hampshire, and Western Massachusetts. It’s great inspiration for trip planning. Find out about secluded swimming holes, old-growth forests, sites of hostage takings and cannibalism, adventure tourism, stunning vistas, back road and rail trail biking, and cozy inns.

Alison O’Leary is an award-winning travel writer and journalist. Her co-author, Michael Tougias, is the author of There’s a Porcupine in My Outhouse, winner of the Best Nature Book of the Year, as well as several Best Day Hike titles published by the Appalachian Mountain Press.
