Publisher's Summary

Debut novelist Wayne Caldwell's Cataloochee -a rich, vivid, arresting work beginning at the dawn of Reconstruction - sprawls across the succeeding generations like the vast green mountains of its rural North Carolina setting. Best-selling author Charles Frazier calls it "a brilliant portrait of a community and a way of life long gone, a lost America." This enthralling saga evokes the full color spectrum of mountain life, from lights to darks and every shade in between.

Critic Reviews

"A...diverting collection of tangential yarns, Caldwell's debut will find a spot on many readers' shelves near Charles Frazier's Thirteen Moons." (Publishers Weekly)

Cataloochee

This was an excellent, well written book. Our Book Club delighted in the freshness and clarity of the land and the simplistic, complicated and hard life of the characters. Ethics for the most part were good. This led to a very good discussion.

Great Historical Fiction

This book really added perspective to my recent trip to the Smoky Mtns of NC and Tenn. The story itself was entertaining and fairly well written, but to me the greatest value in this book is the true to life story it tells of life in the mountains in the time before the land was taken for the Smoky Mountains National Park. A 'must read' before visiting Cataloochee Valley and/or Cades Cove.
