Publisher Description

In 1997, Charles Frazier’s debut novel Cold Mountain made publishing history when it sailed to the top of The New York Times best-seller list for sixty-one weeks, won numerous literary awards, including the National Book Award, and went on to sell over three million copies. Now, the beloved American epic returns, reissued by Grove Press to coincide with the publication of Frazier’s eagerly-anticipated second novel, Thirteen Moons. Sorely wounded and fatally disillusioned in the fighting at Petersburg, a Confederate soldier named Inman decides to walk back to his home in the Blue Ridge mountains to Ada, the woman he loves. His trek across the disintegrating South brings him into intimate and sometimes lethal converse with slaves and marauders, bounty hunters and witches, both helpful and malign. At the same time, the intrepid Ada is trying to revive her father’s derelict farm and learning to survive in a world where the old certainties have been swept away. As it interweaves their stories, Cold Mountain asserts itself as an authentic odyssey, hugely powerful, majestically lovely, and keenly moving.

Must Read!!!

A must read, especially if one waits a spell only to read it again. Finding myself in the actual hollers and hills of Cold Mountain, the thrice reading of this odyssey was immensely rich with reward. Surrounded by the true structure of Fraizer’s natural characters, gifted a deeper wrenching clarity and thrill - though also sharpened the flint arrows of pain, loss and need to move on in life despite the depth of scars. Frazier’s poetic supremacy and powerful storylines are first in class. Narrative bliss!!
