Description


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.

These six stories, available again in this new edition, continue Mosher's career-long exploration of Kingdom County, Vermont. "Within the borders of his fictional kingdom," the Providence Journal has noted, "Mosher has created mountains and rivers, timber forests and crossroads villages, history and language. And he has peopled the landscape with some of the truest, most memorable characters in contemporary literature.
