DescriptionPublished for the first time in flipback - the new, portable, stylish format that's taken Europe by storm. A soldier wounded in the Civil War, Inman turns his back on the carnage of the battlefield and begins the treacherous journey home to Cold Mountain, and to Ada, the woman he loved before the war began. As Inman attempts to make his way across the mountains, through the devastated landscape of a soon-to-be-defeated South, Ada struggles to make a living from the land her once-wealthy father left when he died. Neither knows if the other is still alive.
Biographical NotesCharles Frazier lives in North Carolina, where this novel is set, and where he and his wife have been developing a horse farm for the last five years. COLD MOUNTAIN, his first novel, is based on stories of his ancestors' experiences during the Civil War, handed down through the generations.
