First Review of Charles Frazier's New Book

Charles Frazier, author of the mega-bestseller Cold Mountain, returns on October 3rd with his new novel, Thirteen Moons.

Kirkus Reviews has the first review of the new book, and to make a long story short, they say the book is phenomenal:

"Thirteen Moons brings this vanished world (the Cherokee Nation) thrillingly alive, retelling the agonizing stories of “the Removal” (of Indians from their ancestral lands) and the lie of “Reconstruction”; creating literally dozens of heart-stopping word pictures (e.g., autumns display “a few stunted pumpkins still glowing in the fields and a few persistent apples hanging red in the skeletal orchards”)." "One of the great Native American, and American stories, and a great gift to all of us, from one of our very best writers."
