Charles Frazier. Thirteen Moons. New York: Random House, 2006.

Loosely based on the life of frontiersman William Holland Thomas, narrator Will Cooper provides a detailed picture of life in western North Carolina in the early nineteenth-century. After working as a “bound boy” at a “trade post at the edge of the Nation,” Will is adopted by a Cherokee elder, Bear. Will eventually leads the clan as a white Indian chief and then as a Colonel for the Confederacy. Still haunted by the memory of his one true love, Claire, Will escapes solitude through his travels.
