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 man. Eventually, under the Corn Tassel Moon, Will begins the fight against Washington to preserve the Cherokee's homeland and culture. And he comes 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.

An absolutely compelling novel, so rich in characters and in descriptions of the land. Frazier's use of language is breathtaking and his characterizations are alive. Love story, adventure, hero's journey, tragic history - all come alive in Frazier's narrative. And Will, the protagonist, and Will, the narrator, are made for each other. The southern accent and phrasing are just right! Don't miss this remarkable performance.

A fascinating, great epic tale
While different from Cold Mtn, 13 Moons is a great tale of love and honor. I listened to the last 6 hours of it virtually non-stop, I was so taken with it. It's a fascinating story of the south's Indian's (Cherokee, primarily) and pre-Civil War politics that is little heard. Contrary to the other reviewer, I thought the reader was excellent.
