EBackroad Discovery offers guided tours designed for people who only have a day or two to spend in the area, & who wish to explore the region’s best-kept secrets!

You will discover a sweeping mountain/valley overlook, an international woodworking facility/kitchen store, the oldest abandoned marble quarry in the U.S., an antique covered bridge, and a unique country shop selling locally made goodies. Along the way, you will hear the intriguing facts and stories about the area. This is a great holiday or winter afternoon and an alternative to a day on the slopes.


Emily Bernard discusses Black is the Body 2/22/19 - 2/22/19

Join us on Friday, February 22nd at 6:00 p.m. as Emily Bernard reads and discusses her book Black is the Body: Stories from My Grandmother's Time, My Mother's Time, and Mine. An extraordinary, exquisitely written memoir (of sorts) that looks at race–in a fearless, penetrating, honest, true way–in twelve telltale, connected, deeply personal essays that explore, up-close, the complexities and paradoxes, the haunting memories and ambushing realities of growing up black in the South with a family name inherited from a white man, of getting a PhD from Yale, of marrying a white man from the North, of adopting two babies from Ethiopia, of teaching at a white college and living in America’s New England today.

Pam Houston discusses Deep Creek 2/24/19 - 2/24/19

Join us in welcoming back to Northshire Pam Houston whose new book Deep Creek delivers her most profound meditations yet on how "to live simultaneously inside the wonder and the grief…to love the damaged world and do what I can to help it thrive" in essays as lucid and invigorating as mountain air. On her 120-acre homestead high in the Colorado Rockies, beloved writer Pam Houston learns what it means to care for a piece of land and the creatures on it. Elk calves and bluebirds mark the changing seasons, winter temperatures drop to 35 below, and lightning sparks a 110,000-acre wildfire, threatening her century-old barn and all its inhabitants. Through her travels from the Gulf of Mexico to Alaska, she explores what ties her to the earth, the ranch most of all. Alongside her devoted Irish wolfhounds and a spirited troupe of horses, donkeys, and Icelandic sheep, the ranch becomes Houston's sanctuary, a place where she discovers how the natural world has mothered and healed her after a childhood of horrific parental abuse and neglect.
