The final book by one of America's most treasured writers.
Winner of the Vermont Arts Council Governor's Award for Excellence in the Arts (2006)The stories of Where the Rivers Flow North are "superior work, rich in texture and character," says the Wall Street Journal; "the novella is brilliantly done." That novella, the title story of the collection, was also made into a feature film starring Rip Torn and Michael J. Fox.
Howard Frank Mosher is one of America's most acclaimed writers. His fiction, set in the world of Vermont's Northeast Kingdom, chronicles the intertwining family histories of the natives, wanderers, outcasts, and fugitives--white, Native American, escaped slaves fleeing north, French Canadians, and others--who settled in this remote and beautiful place.
