Summary
Sorely wounded and fatally disillusioned in the fighting at Petersburg, Inman, a Confederate soldier, decides to walk back to his home in the Blue Ridge Mountains and to Ada, the woman he loved there years before. His trek across the disintegrating South brings him in to intimate and sometimes lethal converse with slaves and marauders, bounty hunters and witches, both helpful and malign. At the same time Ada is trying to revive her father's derelict farm
Summary
After Inman escapes from a war hospital in 1864 and starts walking to Cold Mountain, Ada struggles to save her mountain farm with the help of Ruby, an illiterate but efficient farmer
