2 Cold Mountain

Description :  In 1997, Charles Frazier’s debut novel <i>Cold Mountain</i> made publishing history when it sailed to the top of <i>The New York Times</i> 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, <i>Thirteen Moons</i>. 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, <i>Cold Mountain</i> asserts itself as an authentic odyssey, hugely powerful, majestically lovely, and keenly moving.

Description :  <b><i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER</b><br /> &#xa0;<br /> Charles Frazier, the acclaimed author of <i>Cold Mountain </i>and<i> Thirteen Moons,</i> returns with a dazzling novel set in small-town North Carolina in the early 1960s.

Before the children, Luce was content with the reimbursements of the rich Appalachian landscape, choosing to live apart from the small community around her. But the coming of the children changes everything, cracking open her solitary life in difficult, hopeful, dangerous ways. In a lean, tight narrative, <i>Nightwoods</i> resonates with the timelessness of a great work of art.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> <b>“Impossible to shake.”<i>—Entertainment Weekly</i></b><br /> <b><i>&#xa0;</i></b><br /> <b>“Fantastic.”<i>—The Washington Post</i></b><br /> <b>&#xa0;</b><br /> <b>“Astute and compassionate.”<i>—The Boston Globe</i></b>

It is during this time that he grows into a man, learning, as he does, of the raw power it takes to create a life, to find a home. In a card game with a white Indian named Featherstone, Will wins – for a brief moment – a mysterious girl named Claire, and his passion and desire for her spans this novel. As Will’s destiny intertwines with the fate of the Cherokee Indians – including a Cherokee Chief named Bear – he learns how to fight and survive in the face of both nature and men, and eventually, under the Corn Tassel Moon, Will begins the fight against Washington City to preserve the Cherokee’s homeland and culture. And he will come to know the truth behind his belief that “only desire trumps time.” <br /><br />Brilliantly imagined, written with great power and beauty by a master of American fiction, <b>Thirteen Moons </b>is a stunning novel about a man’s passion for a woman, and how loss, longing and love can shape a man’s destiny over the many moons of a life.<br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>
