MIDDLEBURY — In his second year as a student at Middlebury College, Tommy Hyde took a film class that required students to spend a month with a local who was doing something “interesting.” Hyde found Doug Butler, full-time dairy farmer and dog sled racer.

Upon meeting Butler, Hyde was sure he had discovered true, old-school Vermont.

“Soon I found myself on the back of a sled ripping around trails behind this long-haired, wide-eyed, crazy, kooky old Vermonter,” he said.

 “Where are you from?” It’s a question so part of the day-to-day that most hardly give it a second thought, but for the subjects of Sandra Button’s book, it is a question that evokes sharp memories not only of hometowns and childhood shenanigans, but also of hunger, fear and death.
