Author Feature: Ronald Rood

Ronald Rood (July 7, 1920- July 16, 2001) a delightfully fun Vermont author, naturalist and Vermont Public Radio commentator wrote over thirty books, many of which we have in our Vermont Collection.

Rod’s delightful sense of humor comes through just in the titles of books like May I keep the Clam, mother? It followed me home, The Loon in the Bathtub, or Animals Nobody Loves: The Fascinating Story of “Varmints.” His naturalist stories about all manner of critters, are always hilarious and often educational. Come check out any of the previous titles, or the ones listed below, from our collection!
