The Magic of Vermont With this friendly and knowledgeable guide in hand, step into the beauty of Vermont with your eyes and ears attuned to many aspects of the natural world. Whether you love deep woods, history, wildflowers, or watery places, Elizabeth Bassett's revised Nature Walks in Northwest Vermont and the Champlain Valley is an indispensible guide. Providing detailed maps, directions, and lots of photographs, Bassett describes the best aspects of forty-two special places to walk in her beloved state. These walks are for the whole family to enjoy (including the dog in some places). In addition to point-to-point guidance, Bassett fills the chapters with fascinating information: how animals stay warm in winter, plants and landscape that inspired Robert Frost to write some of his most beloved poems, how to identify ferns, the fun (and ease) of winter tracking and tree identification, and why (and where) whale bones and coral reef fossils can be found in the Champlain Valley. In all seasons, Nature Walks in Northwest Vermont and the Champlain Valley is a companion to be savored and used, an inspiration to strap on your snowshoes or lace up your walking boots. This is one of the most interesting corners of the globe and many of its treasures are well-hidden, camouflaged in ways that make this book so necessary and so much fun. You won't lack for adventures once you have a copy -Bill McKibben, author of Wandering Home My first edition of Nature Walks got plenty of use. It was a passport to many pleasant hours of walking in this fascinating part of New England. I look forward to the new features in this revised volume and to further exploring with it. -Tom Slayton, Editor Emeritus of Vermont Life An indispensible companion for your explorations of this region. Elizabeth Bassett offers knowledgeable information keyed to each walk. A fine volume. -Chris Bohjalian, author of The Double Bind and Skeletons at the Feast.

Once you've expanded that menu item, you'll see a box to check Yes:

Once you click the checkbox Yes, you'll be asked to enter your gift card number. That's the number under the barcode on the back of your gift card. It might be a short or long number:

Enter it into the box below the words Enter Your Gift Card Number:

That's it! You will have to add a credit card as a backup in case your gift card doesn't cover the full amount of your purchase. **Because the website doesn't 'know' what amount is on your store gift card — the website and store system are separate entities — you will not see your gift card applied until your order leaves its Pending status and is Processing or Completed.**
