In his only work of nonfiction, Mosher travels across the border between the United States and Canada, from Maine to the Pacific Ocean. What he discovers is a separate state, neither American nor Canadian, with an invisible boundary its inhabitants disregard. Of course, the terrain is the same on either side of the line, but so are the people: individualist, iconoclastic, self-sufficient. He talks with teachers, truckers, farmers, loggers and recluses in bars. He finds them along rivers, in villages, and on the road. He determines that the lonely rugged land both attracts and shapes the unusual people who live there.

Mosher grew up in the Catskills of NY state and has lived for many years in VT. ~ Reviewed by Louise Jones
