UUFB is a collaborating organization in the Library’s Vermont Reads 2022 programming. Free copies of the book are available at Bennington Free Library, provided by Vermont Humanities.
A Vermont Reads 2022 choice, The Most Costly Journey (El viaje más caro), tells the stories of 19 of these workers in their own words. Illustrated by New England cartoonists in a variety of styles, each short chapter describes aspects of life as an immigrant farm worker in Vermont: crossing the southern border, struggling with English, adapting to winter, growing gardens, raising children, dealing with health crises, and working long hours.
