Charles Frazier and the Books of Cold Mountain
an exhibit welcoming the author, Charles Frazier
This exhibit was originally mounted in August 1997 for a reception welcoming back to the University Charles Frazier, a Carolina alumnus (Ph.D. in English, 1986) and author of the bestselling novel Cold Mountain. By May of 1998, the book had spent 45 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. The exhibit features a range of the many literary works and other contemporary sources referred to in Dr. Frazier's novel, which is set largely in his native North Carolina during the Civil War. Quotations in the exhibit notes come from the novel itself.
