Publisher Description

These seven striking tales of life in rural New England are both lyrical and captivating. Kingdom County, Vermont, is an isolated vestige of an earlier New England. In its rugged hills, a proud and resourceful people struggle to live on the land that is both their adversary and their life's blood.

"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."

The stories in this collection are: "Alabama Jones," "Burl," "First Snow," "The Peacock," "High Water," "Kingdom Country Come," and "Where the Rivers Flow North (A Novella)."

    " Short stories (and one novella) about life and death in rural northern Vermont, set in the early 20th century. Mr. Mosher plainly knows his territory (and his logging). Life there is hard, but the stories are well-written and not unbearably bleak. "
