Points North is a collection of stories completed by Howard Frank Mosher shortly before he passed away in January 2017 at the age of 74. While the Army Corp of Engineers, an itinerant preacher, local museum trustees, and the courts try to foil the fly-fishing, baseball playing, classics reading and wilderness loving residents of Kingdom County, they do not get the last word. The storyteller does. Beautifully written without sentimentality, Mosher’s final stories of Northern Vermont’s Kingdom County are a celebration and a benediction of this fictional place and its people. Howard Frank Mosher was to Vermont what Ivan Doig was to Montana, Kent Haruf was to Colorado, and Ken Kesey was to Oregon–a treasured American writer who will be greatly missed.
