THIRTEEN MOONS is a triumph. With a voice filled with nuance and grit, Will Patton is the perfect choice to recount the story of Cooper, from the age of 12, when he sets off to run a remote Indian trading post by himself, to his final years as an elderly statesman. Patton effectively portrays the characters Cooper meets along the way: Claire, his beloved; Featherstone, her husband; and Bear, the Cherokee chief who adopts Will and sets him on the path to protect family land and the Cherokee way of life. Acoustic guitar and fiddle signal chapter breaks and set the tone. Frazier’s prose and Patton’s narration are perfectly matched. D.J.P. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 07]
