9780007184712: Cold Mountain

First novel presents an Odyssean journey, combining a powerful love story with all the human tragedy and waste of war. Inman, a wounded soldier, turns his back on the carnage of the Civil War to begin the long, perilous walk home to Colud Mountain, and to Ada, the woman he loved before the war began.

Review:

The hero of Charles Frazier's beautifully written and deeply-imagined first novel is Inman, a disillusioned Confederate soldier who has failed to die as expected after being seriously wounded in battle during the last days of the Civil War. Rather than waiting to be redeployed to the front, the soul-sick Inman deserts, and embarks on a dangerous and lonely odyssey through the devastated South, heading home to North Carolina, and seeking only to be reunited with his beloved, Ada, who has herself been struggling to maintain the family farm she inherited. Cold Mountain is an unforgettable addition to the literature of one of the most important and transformational periods in American history.

From the Publisher:


"... a heartbreakingly beautiful story, elegantly told, and utterly convincing down to the last haunting detail."
-- John Berendt, author of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil

"A memorable book."
-- The New York Times Book Review

"It seems possible to never want to read another book, so wonderful is this one. Cold Mountain is one of the great accomplishments in American literature."
-- Rick Bass

"It's simply a miracle."
-- Larry Brown, author of Joe
