A new edition of a classic short-story collection.
The stories of Where the Rivers Flow North are “superior work, rich in texture and character,” says the Wall Street Journal, and “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 Howard Frank 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.” This new edition features a new introduction by novelist Peter Orner.
About the Author
Described by the Los Angeles Times as “a combination of Ernest Hemingway, Henry David Thoreau, and Jim Harrison,” Howard Frank Mosher is the author of Northern Borders, Where the River Flows North, A Stranger in the Kingdom (winner of the New England Book Award for fiction), and other novels and short stories.
“Mosher writes stories, almost folk tales at times, built out of lost and forgotten history, rooted in a strong sense of place, inhabited with colorful characters. His terrain may be specific, but his themes are universal.” — USA Today
"Mosher has a fine knack for evoking natural beauty—an otter sliding off an icy log, a loon whooping over a dark lake--and he has a convincing sense of adventure." — Los Angeles Times
"Mosher is a remarkably good observer of nature as well as a born storyteller." — Boston Herald
"With each book, Mosher fleshes out more of his literary turf, a frontier brimming with men and women who follow their own rules." — Boston Globe
