Celebrating the Northeast Kingdom

Sixty years ago, Senator George Aiken popularized the name of the "Northeast Kingdom."  And now, we celebrate the region best known for its unspoiled beauty and calmer way of life.  Our guests include Rep. Scott Wheeler, and longtime Kingdom resident Norm Lewis (a.k.a. Danny Gore).  Also, a look at the logging industry with author Jack McEnany.
