About this product
- DescriptionHoward Frank Mosher has spent the greater part of his career depicting a relatively isolated section of Vermont kwn as the Northeast Kingdom. Yet, even as he writes about that particular area in the Green Mountain State, he is investigating age-old themes from among the best English and American literary works. His first vel, <i>Disappearances</i> (1977), signaled the arrival of a master craftsman harkening us back to Melville's <i>Billy Budd</i> and <i>Moby-Dick</i>, in terms of humankind's struggle against an ever present evil. A full 33 years after the publication of his first vel, the Vermont author, in <i>Walking to Gatlinburg</i> (2010), examined the polarity between cowardice and hor. In the intervening years, between <i>Disappearances</i> and <i>Gatlinburg</i>, Mosher explored crucial matters such as the disappearing wilderness, industrialization, black male/white female encounters, the necessity of humor, the quest for salvation, and the immortality of romantic love, all issues that he delved into as he staked out a unique terrain within the pantheon of Bunyan, Shakespeare, Dreiser, Twain, Faulkner, Steinbeck, Harper Lee, and others.
