Quarry Books


Quarry Books is a series of chapbooks intended to reclaim Vermonters who time has buried less than overlooked. The past may not make itself known to us until we have caught up with it, despite the efforts of the archaeologists and historians. It may take a word, a shout in the street, rustlings of one kind or another - the collisions of deja vu - to bring it back. The already-heard, as it were, that reaches us like an echo.


A People's History
The photographs of 
Hazel Dow Wood

Robert Buckeye  

Quarry Books No. 9

Winter  2010  


In the reclusive, private practice of a photographer Hazel Dow Wood followed that was secondary to her life as wife and mother, she stakes a claim for a public life fast disappearing, even if the medium she used to preserve that life was integral to what has come to be known as the commercialization of leisure, and subsequently, the colonization of every day life. Wood's photographs have to be seen in the context of the America of its time.
