Show synopsis The companion to the bestseller, "Walking to Cold Mountain" visualizes for the reader the places and environments so evocatively explained in Charles Frazier's novel Cold Mountain. In this beautifully illustrated volume, historic duotone photographs, passages from novels set in the Civil War era, and excerpts from historic letters and soldier's journals combine to create a haunting, impressionistic journey through the American past. "Walking to Cold Mountain" translates Frazier's compelling story of the Civil War in the American South into stirring visual images, beginning with the words and pictures of such pivotal Civil War figures as Grant, Lee, and Lincoln. In addition to the important photographic camps of Matthew Brady and Alexander Gardner -- who captured the visual essence of the war -- are scenes of the American South similar to those that Inman, Frazier's hero, would have seen on his long journey to Cold Mountain.
