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?
