by Charles Frazier

jacket-cold-mountainInman, a disillusioned Confederate soldier, 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.
