Howard Frank Mosher was a master storyteller whose novels captivated readers with their vivid and evocative descriptions of small-town life in Vermont. One of his most intriguing works is "Disappearances," a novel that delves into the mysterious and enigmatic world of the Northeast Kingdom.

Set in the 1930s during the era of Prohibition, "Disappearances" follows the journey of Wild Bill Bonhomme, a larger-than-life character with a penchant for whiskey smuggling. Bonhomme embarks on a dangerous trek through the rugged wilderness of Vermont's Northeast Kingdom in search of a legendary stash of alcoholic beverage concealed by his long-lost father.

Mosher's prose paints a gripping picture of the remote and unforgiving landscape that becomes a character in its own right. The reader can feel the biting cold, smell the pungent scent of the forest, and hear the haunting echoes of the past that permeate every page. It is a world shrouded in mystery, where reality and folklore intertwine seamlessly.

New England Book Award Winner: A father and son smuggle liquor across the border in Depression-era Vermont in this “remarkable and wonderful” novel (The Christian Science Monitor).

This endearing novel is both a heroic adventure and a thrilling coming-of-age story. It is the memorable tale of a young man named Wild Bill Bonhomme, his larger-than-life father, Quebec Bill, and their whiskey-smuggling exploits along the Vermont-Canada border in 1932. On an epic journey through the wilderness, Bill and his father encounter a cast of wild characters—and live out magical escapades as they carve their way into legend.

“Revives the tall tale with remarkable grace and intelligence…delightful.”—The Washington Post

“Disappearances at its best is reminiscent of manic Faulkner, wild and violent and violently funny.”—The Boston Herald

“Rollicking, boisterous, sprawling, [and] highly entertaining.”—Harper’s Magazine
