Synopsis

This magnificent novel by one of America's finest writers is the epic of one man's remarkable journey, set in nineteenth-century America against the background of a vanishing people and a rich way of life.At the age of twelve, under the Wind moon, Will is given a horse, a key, and a map, and sent alone into the Indian Nation to run a trading post as a bound boy. It is during this time that he grows into a man, learning, as he does, of the raw power it takes to create a life, to find a home. In a card game with a white Indian named Featherstone, Will wins -- for a brief moment -- a mysterious girl named Claire, and his passion and desire for her spans this novel. As Will's destiny intertwines with the fate of the Cherokee Indians -- including a Cherokee Chief named Bear -- he learns how to fight and survive in the face of both nature and men, and eventually, under the Corn Tassel Moon, Will begins the fight against Washington City to preserve the Cherokee's homeland and culture. And he will come to know the truth behind his belief that "only desire trumps time." Brilliantly imagined, written with great power and beauty by a master of American fiction, Thirteen Moons is a stunning novel about a man's passion for a woman, and how loss, longing and love can shape a man's destiny over the many moons of a life.From the Hardcover edition.

Reviews

On May 11 2009, PeaceDemon said:
Almost dreamlike and surreal in its language and imagery, but also starkly realistic in its detail and impression of the forces at work during the early era of America's creation. Very moving on the level of the individual narrator and Cherokees, as well as on a level of a "nation" facing ethnic cleansing and the mainstream citizens that supported it.

Author Charles Frazier very much humanizes a little known chapter in American history, but its telling indicates that the perpetrators are now mature enough to admit it. I read this book at the same time the PBS series "We Remain" was being aired, and the two were very, very complementary.
