Nearly a decade has passed since Charles Frazier's melancholic Civil War-novel debut won the National Book Award and became a runaway bestseller, but the time has not been wasted. In THIRTEEN MOONS, Frazier tells the intricately researched and richly imagined life story of Will Cooper, an orphan who grows up to be a merchant, soldier, lawyer, senator, and surrogate Cherokee during the Trail of Tears, leaving him, in the end, a heartsick and bitter old man.
Author Bio
Charles Frazier
Frazier has lived most of his life in North Carolina, where he was a professor of American literature until he began raising horses. He devoted more than five years to the writing of his first published novel, the phenomenally successful "Cold Mountain", which is based on an ancestor of his named Inman who, wounded in the Civil War, left the hospital in which he was recuperating for an arduous trek home.


"[Charles] Frazier works on an epic scale, but his genius is in the details--he has a scholar's command of the physical realities of early America and a novelist's gift for bringing them to life." - Lev Grossman 08/21/2006

"With pristine prose that's often wry, Frazier brings a rough-and-tumble pioneer past magnificently to life, indicts America with painful bluntness for the betrayal of its native people, and recounts a romance rife with sadness....a bountiful literary panorama." [Starred review.] 08/28/2006
