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.

    " I first read this book because the Horseflies wrote the music for the movie made from this book. All the books by Howard Frank Mosher, about life in northern Vermont, are well worth it. "

    " This quote from Wallace Stegner was on the cover: "Full of invention people humor country energy lingo ebullience." I completely disagree.[return][return]Invention: The book was a collection of short stories. Pretty much the same story: life sucks a "

    " 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. "

    " A nice collection of Vermont stories. "
