Book Description: 

The final book by one of AmericaG++º+++s most treasured writers.

Upon his passing in January 2017, Howard Frank Mosher was recognized as one of AmericaG++º+++s most acclaimed writers. His fiction set in the world of VermontG++º+++s fabled Northeast Kingdom chronicles the intertwining family histories of the natives, wanderers, outcasts, and others who settled in this ethereal place. In its obituary, The New York Times wrote, G++º-+¦Mr. MosherG++º+++s fictional Kingdom County, Vt., became his New England version of FaulknerG++º+++s Yoknapatawpha County.G++º-+æ

In Points North, completed just weeks before his death, Mosher presents a brilliant, lovingly-evoked collection of stories that center around the Kinneson family, ranging over decades of their history in the Kingdom. From a loquacious itinerant preacher who beguiles the reticent farmers and shopkeepers of a small New England town, to a proposed dam that threatens the river that Kinneson men have fished for generations, the scandalous secret of a romance and its violent consequences, and a young manG++º+++s seemingly fruitless search for loveG++º+-ªPoints North is a full-hearted, gently-comic, and beautifully-written last gift to the readers who treasure Howard Frank Mosher.
