Meet Megan Price, the author of ‘Vermont Wild’ at the Poultney Museum of History and Art

Saturday, September 10 – POULTNEY – This event is jointly sponsored/hosted by two 501(c)(3) Poultney nonprofits, the Poultney Museum of History and Art and the Welsh-American Genealogical Society, along with Poultney Area St David’s Society , a 501(c)(7) non-profit organization.

The book was published by Pine Marten Press, Charlotte. With the purchase of a signed book between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. that day, the visit to the museum and its exhibitions is free.

Covid-19 masks are not mandatory; however, they are appreciated by some event attendees.

Megan Price hails from the Vermont Lake District whose heritage is 100% Welsh. True to Price’s legacy, her original plan was to sing, but she decided writing was more likely to pay the bills. Price worked as a journalist, was later elected to three terms in the Vermont Legislative Assembly, and later worked for health care reform to benefit Vermont’s seniors, which resulted in a Department of Health investigation. Justice.

For the past decade, Price has focused on writing the stories of retired game wardens. The result is “Vermont Wild, Adventures of Fish & Game Wardens” proven successful with ages 9-99 in Vermont and nationwide. The Guardian’s stories are told in first person and capture their true encounters with hungry bears, angry moose, noisy raccoons and countless clever poachers. The stories are read aloud in schools from Maine to Texas, taken to hunting camps and shared in nursing homes. To date, Price has published over 100 men’s stories, with the men’s photos and a brief biography in each book.

Due to Price’s Welsh heritage in the Vermont/New York Slate Valley communities of Poultney, Fair Haven and Castleton, Megan Price is a member of the Poultney Area St. David’s Society. She enjoys discovering new information about her Welsh ancestors who migrated to this area in the mid to late 1800s from villages in North West Wales.

Price’s visit to Wales amplified his interest in heritage and culture. His Price ancestry is firmly rooted in Bethesda and Llanllechid, as well as the Welsh surnames of Owens, Roberts, Hughs, Jones, Ellis and Williams in Llanllyfni, Llanddeiniolen and several other parishes.

The Welcoming House in Wales is always in his heart, as it is also in his Welcoming House in the Slate Valley communities.
