The impact of the Civil War on lovers. Inman is not the man he used to be, as wounded in battle he slowly makes his way home to North Carolina. His sweetheart, Ada, too has changed, no longer a flighty belle but a hard-working farm woman. Will love be the same?

Set during the Civil War a wounded soldier tired of war walks to his home in the mountains. A privileged woman has to learn how to support herself when her father dies leaving her alone and penniless in the mountains. Oh. yeah. They may be in love with each other. Somehow compelling despite the endless descriptions of the wilderness and their meals - mainly wild animals. One of those books that makes me think "wow it would have sucked to have to live through/like that". ( )

A story based primarily in North Carolina, I enjoyed reading about my home state. I also thoroughly enjoyed some of the characters. Inman, a very capable and yet unpretentious man, and Ruby, the independent and self-sufficient woman, were my favorites. Ruby reminds me of Sayward, the lead character in Richter's The Awakening Land trilogy. I did not, however, like that much of the book was a traveling story, like Don Quixote, or a traveling home story, like The Odyssey. While I loved Don Quixote and The Odyssey, the structure of those stories was basic the first time around. Inman's part of [b:Cold Mountain|10920|Cold Mountain|Charles Frazier|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1442416348l/10920._SY75_.jpg|1006369] is a conglomeration of funny anecdotes, amusing characters, challenging predicaments and occasional temptations. I find these types of travel stories a bit contrived. The structure of the novel seemed designed as the delivery method for a lot of smaller, often unrelated stories. The transitions into many of these back stories felt awkward.

Lee Smith has accomplished painting this picture a few times in her career, as I am sure a few other authors have, but the accomplishment is still quite rare as are the people and culture described.

This has been sitting on my shelf for years, I finally picked it up on the back of good reviews on this site. Beautiful writing, it is so understated, catching your attention unawares. A story of resilience and survival, Inman making his way slowly and tortuously back to Ada; Ada would have died if Ruby hasn't been sent to her. Inman's story is the more curious of the two, with him meeting rather weird characters in odd places. Finally, the two met in the woods. Inman didn't live but he left behind a daughter with Ada. ( )

Another book I had heard about but didn't really know anything about. It sat on my shelf for over five years. Sigh.

This is an excellent civil war story. Not just because of the depth of detail about the time but because the characters are beautifully drawn, and ultimately they drive the story.

It is a love story. But not like any other I've read. We learn very little about the interactions between the two main characters, except through their memories, and even then it's sketchy. We do, however, get to know them individually, as they cope with the situations they have inherited.

Inman is a confederate soldier who has been wounded badly. He finds himself in a hospital where patients do a lot of fending for themselves, and ultimately decides his better move is to get out, away from the fighting, away from the war, and back to Cold Mountain, where he grew up. To Ada. Ada, raised in Charleston, educated, sophisticated, finds herself in Cold Mountain alone, with no real skills, coping with a farm her father took on more as a hobby than as a functioning concern. Many ask her when she is going to return to Charleston, because they can't imagine her staying on.

And so Inman leaves the hospital and hits the trail. Knowing little about where he is or where anything is, really, he works his way back toward Cold Mountain over a period of many weeks. Weeks when he might get caught and sent back into battle. Weeks when he meets up with others who may be of help or may be the death of him. Weeks without money or goods to trade. Other reviewers call is an American Odyssey, a Whitmanesque foray. Yes, those terms fit.

Meanwhile, Ada meets her savior, Ruby, a rough country woman who knows nothing of books but plenty about getting by.

I was about a third of the way into it when I realized I loved this book. It met all of my expectations. ( )

Most descriptive account of the south that I've read - the author has a fine brush - really teleports you back there. The convergence of the protagonists stories makes for a tidy love story. ( )

Frazier has been widely and justly praised for his elegant prose and rich evocations of the natural world. For me, however, the deepest satisfactions of his novel derive from his deft treatment of certain perennially appealing pop archetypes.
 
Cold Mountain is sincerely plausible. It is a solemn fake. You will not hear this from the readers and judges who have helped make Charles Frazier's Civil War tale probably the most popular novel about that period since Gone With the Wind. (Since its publication in June, Cold Mountain has sold more than a million copies; in November, it won the National Book Award.) The book is so professionally archaeological, so competently dug, that one can mistake its surfaces for depth. But it's like a cemetery with no bodies in it. All the records of life are there, the facts and figures and pocket histories, pointing up out of the ground, but what's buried there was never alive.

For a first novelist, in fact for any novelist, Charles Frazier has taken on a daunting task -- and has done extraordinarily well by it.
