Review: COLD MOUNTAIN by Charles Frazier

Jules’ Book Reviews reviewed Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier for the U.S. Civil War Reading Challenge 2011.  Here’s an excerpt:

The book also shows the other side of the civil war, instead of showing the battles, it shows how those left behind carried on with life, with what little provisions they had, and in a sense struggled for survival. Soldiers are seen throughout the book, as they hunt for deserters and the “enemy”, but they are more in the background, and don’t overpower the important side of the story, which is self-discovery during a time affected by war.
