The Green Mountain Club recently won the Vermont Historical Society's prestigious Richard O. Hathaway Award for their book "A Century in the Mountains: Celebrating Vermont's Long Trail".
This is a 190-page large format book of color photographs and essays celebrating 100 years of the Long Trail. Edited by Tom Slayton, editor emeritus of Vermont Life magazine, it is a full-sized coffee table book containing more than 185 full-color photographs.
The Hathaway Award was created to recognize outstanding work in the field of Vermont history. It is dedicated to the memory of Richard O. Hathaway, whose lifelong work teaching Vermont history was an inspiration to his colleagues and to the many students he taught and mentored, both inside and outside academia.
The annual Hathaway Award, which includes a $1,000 cash prize, recognizes an outstanding contribution to the field of Vermont history completed, published, released or presented during the previous calendar year.
