Thirteen Moons

A Novel
  • By Charles Frazier
At the age of twelve, an orphan named Will Cooper is given a horse, a key, and a map and is sent on a journey through the uncharted wilderness of the Cherokee Nation. Will is a bound boy, obliged to run a remote Indian trading post. As he fulfills his lonesome duty, Will finds a father in Bear, a Cherokee chief, and is adopted by him and his people, developing relationships that ultimately forge Will s character. All the while, his love of Claire, the enigmatic and captivating charge of volatile and powerful Featherstone, will forever rule Will s heart. In a voice filled with both humor and yearning, Will tells of a lifelong search for home, the hunger for fortune and adventure, the rebuilding of a trampled culture, and above all an enduring pursuit of passion.
Los Angeles Times Book Review, Chicago Tribune,
and St. Louis Post-Dispatch
A literary journey of magnitude . . . Thirteen Moons belongs to the ages.
Los Angeles Times
A boisterous, confident novel that draws from the epic tradition: It tips its hat to Don Quixote as well as Twain and Melville, and it boldly sets out to capture a broad swatch of America s story in the mid-nineteenth century.
The Boston Globe

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.
A powerhouse second act . . . a brilliant success.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Compulsively readable . . . a fitting successor to Cold Mountain.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Magical . . . fascinating and moving . . . You will find much to admire and savor in Thirteen Moons.
USA Today
Mesmerizing . . . a bountiful literary panorama . . . The history that Frazier hauntingly unwinds through Will is as melodic as it is melancholy, but the sublime love story is the narrative s true heart.
Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Brimming with vivid, adventurous incident.
Raleigh News & Observer
Reading a Frazier novel is like listening to a fine symphony. . . . Take the time to savor Frazier s work, to take in each thought, to relish the turn of phrase or the imagery of a craftsman.
The Denver Post
Four stars] . . . Commanding . . . Frazier s faithful will not be disappointed.
Superbly entertaining.
Richmond Times-Dispatch
Fascinating . . . vivid and alive.
