trekwoman's bookbox; Glad the author too poetic licensure with a real person to create this excellent fiction. Orphaned Will is sent to be bound to run a trading post at the edge of the Cherokee Nation (which is in the Applachian Mountains). He meets an Indian, Featherstone, believes he wins the man's daughter Claire in a card game and is befriended by Cherokee chief Bear. Gorgous details of the region, it's development, and the fight with Washington to preserve the Indian land during the 1800's. Thirteen moons refers to the Cherokee calendar, which has the 13 different moons in the yearly cycle. This will move along in the "T" title bookring.

Found this in my mailbox upon return from a short trip. Nice surprise. This book was a RABCK from Booklady331. Promise to journal once read (might take awhile), and then I'll pass it along to someone else.

Journal Entry 11 by LynnWrites at Tucson, Arizona USA on Thursday, September 28, 2017
No one is more surprised than me that I thoroughly enjoyed this book; in fact, once started, I could barely put it down. The subject matter – a very learned man looking back on a long life lived from post-revolutionary through post-civil war America, with one foot in the world of the Cherokee nation and one in white America--would usually not interest me. Described as such, I would have passed, and would have missed out on an excellent, well-written, absorbing tale. Lesson here - read out of your comfort zone.

The author’s style lies somewhere between Mark Twain and Annie Dillard, or maybe Barbara Kingsolver: folksy, but with an analytical, intelligent voice; insightful and philosophical; humorous with a satirical edge; gossipy but juicy and witty… just a great read from cover to cover. His descriptions of the rugged countryside, the Cherokee people, survival in the wilderness, war and its insanities, are poignant, frightening, and beautiful all at the same time. His insights into human nature and understanding of the follies of the political machine make you wish the main character, Will Cooper, was running for office today.

Can’t recommend this book highly enough.
