Publisher Description:
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.

Named ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR by
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."
-Time

"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

"Genius."
-Time

"Mesmerizing . . . a bountiful literary panorama . . . The history that Frazier hauntingly unwinds through Will is as melodic as it is
