From the Publisher:

When six-year-old Austen Kittredge was sent up north to live on his grandparents' farm in 1948, little did he know that he would spend the next 12 years of his life there, or that his remarkable stay would never leave him, no matter how far he traveled.

The farm in Lost Nation Hollow would become a magical place for Austen, full of eccentric people -- like his stubborn but loving grandparents, whose marriage was known as the Forty Years War -- wild adventures, and festering family secrets. An enchanting, startling coming-of-age novel, Northern Borders evokes the sublime imagery county fairs, heirloom quilts, and timber forests, while it gently adheres to your heart.

Howard Frank Mosher lives in Vermont near the Canadian border with his wife and their son and daughter.

"Northern Borders is a wonderful performance, by turns touching and funny, always exact, and graced by an undeceived love for his land and people." -- Tobais Wolff

"A contempory classic... a complex, yet idyllic story of childhood in Vermont." -- Los Angeles Times.

"An old-fashioned classic classic adventure story with lots of heart and exciting outdoors action -- the kind that makes you want to run to your L.L. Bean catalogue, and order a pair of thermal underwear, boots and a backpack, and head for the woods." -- Fannie Flagg, The New York Times Book Review.

"With each book, Mosher fleshes out more of his literary turf, a frontier brimming with men and women who follow their own rules." -- The Boston Globe.
