Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier

<div><i>Cold Mountain</i>is an extraordinary novel about a soldiers perilous journey back to his beloved at the end of the Civil War. At once a magnificent love story and a harrowing account of one mans long walk home,<i>Cold Mountain</i>introduces a stunning new talent in American literature.<br /> <br /> Based on local history and family stories passed down by the authors great-great-grandfather,<i>Cold Mountain</i>is the tale of a wounded soldier, Inman, who walks away from the ravages of the war and back home to his prewar sweetheart, Ada. Inmans odyssey through the devastated landscape of the soon-to-be-defeated South interweaves with Adas struggle to revive her fathers farm, with the help of an intrepid young drifter named Ruby. As their long-separated lives begin to converge at the close of the war, Inman and Ada confront the vastly transformed world theyve been delivered.<br /> <br /> Charles Frazier reveals marked insight into mans relationship to the land and the dangers of solitude. He also shares with the great nineteenth century novelists a keen observation of a society undergoing change.<i>Cold Mountain</i>re-creates a world gone by that speaks eloquently to our time.</div
