Howard Frank Mosher
Mosher writes stories, almost folk tales at times, built out of lost and forgotten history, rooted in a strong sense of place, inhabited with colorful characters. His terrain may be specific, but his themes are universal.
Mosher has a fine knack for evoking natural beauty-an otter sliding off an icy log, a loon whooping over a dark lake-and he has a convincing sense of adventure.
—Los Angeles Times
Mosher is a remarkably good observer of nature as well as a born storyteller.
With each book, Mosher fleshes out more of his literary turf, a frontier brimming with men and women who follow their own rules.
Described by the Los Angeles Times as “a combination of Ernest Hemingway, Henry David Thoreau, and Jim Harrison,” HOWARD FRANK MOSHER is the author of The True Account: A Novel of the Lewis and Clark and Kinneson Expeditions, A Stranger in the Kingdom (winner of the 1991 New England Book Award for fiction), and other books. His collection Where the Rivers Flow North has also been reissued by UPNE; the title story of that collection was made into a movie starring Rip Torn and Michael J. Fox. He has received a Guggenheim fellowship and a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship, the American Academy of Arts and Letters Literature Award, and the American Civil Liberties Union Award for Excellence in the Arts.
