The extaordinary story of a soldier's perilous journey back to his beloved at the end of the Civil War, Cold Mounatin is at once an enthralling adevenure, a stirring love story, and a luminous evocation of a vanish land, a place where savagery coexists with splendor and human beings contend with the inhuman solitude of the wildreness. Sorely wounded and fatally disillusioned in the fighting at St. Petersburg, a Confederate soldier named Inman decides to walk back home to the Blue Ridge mountains and to Ada, the woman he loves. His trek across the disintegrating South brings him into intimate converse with slaves and marauders, bounty hunters, and witches, both helpful and malign. At the same time, the inrepid Ada is trying to revive her father's derelict farm and learning to survive in a world where the old certanties have been swept away. As it interweaves their stories, Cold Mountain asserts itself as an authentic odyssey- powerful, majestic, moving.
