Praise for "Walking to Gatlinburg
"An Indie Next Notable Pick
"Mosher is a rare storyteller, able to both instruct and entertain, and he brings all his talents to this unforgettable and unique novel."
"A Civil War odyssey in the tradition of Charles Frazier's "Cold Mountain" and Robert Olmstead's "Coal Black Horse," Mosher's latest, about a Vermont teenager's harrowing journey south to find his missing-in-action brother, is old-fashioned in the best sense of the word....The story of Morgan's rite-of-passage through an American arcadia despoiled by war and slavery is an engrossing tale with mass appeal.
"We are in the hands of a skilled storyteller, and every word matters. A captivating story, and one that cries for a sequel."
-"Kirkus," starred review
"[A] haunting and hallucinatory novel....Historical realism this isn't but it is a violent, often puzzling picaresque with an invigorating take on the Underground Railroad and an unsettling vision of an America despoiled by the War between the States."
