Overview

Where the Rivers Flow North by Howard Frank Mosher

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.”

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.
