Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“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 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

Mosher, known for his stories and characters from the north country, astounds his audiences in his novella, 'Where the Rivers Flow North.' 'Rivers' is easily his best work to date. The character development was more than amazing as he lead his readers along from scene to scene. It is the tale of one man's stubborn fight for simplicity in a world that is rapidly turning corporate. In reading this, I felt the snow, smelled the spruce, shivered by the chill. I was so attached to the characters that I laughed and cried with them. Mosher brings a fresh, crisp, creativity to his work--a nice change. This is a superb work and well-worth a read.
