Vermont: The Gift of the Dragon
H.S. Robinson, a young cheese factory mechanic from Rome, New York, decides one day to fulfill his dream of hunting a real-life monster. In this case, it is the Lake Champlain monster “Champy” — a legendary sea dragon that is rumored to reflect back whatever you bring to the lake. For some it is pride, for others it is conquest — and for H.S., it turns out to be love.
