Everyone is welcome to join discussion of Cold Mountain, by Charles Frazier, at the Natick Community-Senior Center.
Wounded in the fighting at Petersburg, a Confederate soldier decides to walk back to his home in the Blue Ridge mountains to Ada, the woman he loves. His trek across the disintegrating South brings him into intimate and sometimes lethal contact with slaves and marauders, bounty hunters, and witches, both helpful and malign. At the same time, Ada is trying to revive her father’s derelict farm and learning to survive in the post-Civil War world.
