Howard Frank Mosher (June 2, 1942 – January 29, 2017) was an American author of thirteen books: eleven fiction and two non-fiction. Much of his fiction takes place in the mid-20th century and all of it is set in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, a region loosely defined by the three counties in the northeastern corner of the state (Essex, Orleans, and Caledonia). His characters are often quirky, reflecting the distinctive peculiarities of the region's taciturn residents.

Some reviewers criticized this book for being a mythic tale. I enjoyed the mythic qualities of the book to a point. It requires some suspension of belief and willingness to go along for the ride to enjoy this book. I was able to suspend belief for the first half of the book, but when the son starts conjuring prehistoric saber tooth tigers into existence in his basement I could no longer go along for the ride. Beautiful lyrical writing that pushes the boundaries of belief a little too far.

This book started out a little slow for me, but I'm very glad I stuck with it. It was an interesting story about some incredibly quirky and determined characters, especially the main character, Quebec Bill, who you grow to love and just shake your head at the predicaments that he and his family get into and out of...you just can't wait to see what's next!!! The action keeps you reading!

I wanted to like it, I've never read anything historical taking place in that part of the country (northern Vermont/Canada). Unfortunately, it jumped around so much I was lost much of the time.
Ballardana
Awesome, excellent, and unbelievable storytelling. Mosher has a great imagination, and the story was a wild ride!
Umsida
This was the first book I have read by this author. Enjoyed it very much. How can one not enjoy a quirky cast of characters, an automobile going off a cliff, a train wreck and a plane crash in a swamp. All this set in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont on the Canadian border.

Add Mosher to your Bucket list of authors. He writes classics that won't be fully appreciated for another century. He has the ability to bring the North East Kingdom into your head and keep it there. Read with the window open, on a rainy day, so you can physically experience what you're reading.

This book was fascinating and Mr. Mosher is truly a wonderful story-teller. I just wanted to keep reading the story, such wonderful descriptions, with humor and seriousness. Will definitely read more of his books, since this was the first I have read of this author. I cannot say enough about how much I enjoyed the book and his writing is superb!
I loved reading this book at once. It captured me with its beautifully crafted writing, humor and sage vision. Although I had to look up quite a few words, reading it was a pleasure. It’s part Braer Rabbit, part Huck Finn and it’s own original voice from upper New England.
