Set in northern Vermont in 1930, On Kingdom Mountain introduces us
to Miss Jane Hubbell Kinneson. A renowned local bookwoman and
eccentric bird carver, she is the last remaining resident of a wild
mountain on the U.S.-Canadian border, now threatened by a proposed
new highway known as the Connector.
On her fiftieth birthday, a mysterious stunt pilot and weathermaker
enters her life when his biplane crashes on the frozen lake at the
foot of her mountain. He brings with him a riddle -- handed down
from his grandfather -- containing clues to the whereabouts of
$100,000 in stolen Civil War gold that may have been hidden on Miss
Jane's property. As she and the footloose aviator begin to search
for the treasure, Miss Jane finds herself confronted by the most
important decisions of her life.
Featuring daring action scenes and outrageous comedy, along with a
passionate and surprising love affair, On Kingdom Mountain
represents traditional storytelling at its best, rooted deeply in
Howard Mosher's own family history and in a way of life on the
brink of extinction.
