“Superior work, rich in texture and character…Mosher is a writer of power and originality.” – Wall Street Journal
"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
Viking, 1978; paperback Hardscrabble Books, 2004
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 tcollection, 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 Country, Vermont. “Within the borders of his fictional kingdom,” the Providence Journal noted, “Mosher has created mountains and rivers, timber forests and crossroads villages, history and language. And he has people the landscape with some of the truest, most memorable characters in contemporary literature.”
"Mosher is a remarkably good observer of nature as well as a born storyteller." - Boston Herald
"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
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
