WHERE THE RIVERS FLOW NORTH
Fiction by Howard Frank Mosher
"... a superior book in every way—full of invention, people, humor, country, energy, lingo, ebullience. And it's new— nobody ever did these people or this country before, so far as I know. It's something of a shock to find Vermonters, who a hundred years ago were being done as laconics, handled with a tall-tale touch.... Howard Mosher is a new regional voice, and a strong one. He should have a lot more good books in him. Vermont had voices as it was emerging from wild woods into fields and farms. It is going to have a voice as it goes back to woods." —WALLACE STEGNER
In this collection of short fiction Howard Frank Mosher returns to the scenic but rugged hill country of northern Vermont that provided the setting for his highly praised first novel, Disappearances. The characters who people the six stories are natives of this isolated remnant of an earlier New England. They are fiercely proud, resourceful, determined to the point of stubbornness. They lead a strictly circumscribed existence—mean, elemental, unsparing. They buck adversity. They prevail. The theme of man's precarious tenure in Kingdom County culminates in a novella that describes part of a year in the austere lives of the elderly logger Noel Lord and his irrepressible Indian housekeeper, Bangor, who live with an old horse and a feeble dog at the head of the last wild river in Vermont. In the ironic and understated tradition of much of the best New England writing, Where the Rivers Flow North conveys the grimness and the beauty of life on one of the last frontiers of America.
