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.
