  1. Cold Mountain By Charles Frazier Chapter Analysis by Caitlin Low, 12N

  2. Chapter Four – verbs, all of them tiring Defining Moment/Idea – Inpendence Ruby recalls her neglected childhood, in which her drunkard father, StobrodThewes, played little part in. “Feeding herself was Ruby’s to do as soon as she was old enough to be held accountable for it, which in Stobrod’s opinion, fell close to learning to walk.” (p. 102) At the age of four, Ruby spent the night alone in the wilderness, after her nightgown was caught on a blackthorn tree. It was then that she heard a voice, “some tender force of landscape or sky”, which comforted and protected her throughout the night (p. 103).

  3. Chapter Four – verbs, all of them tiring Whether this ‘voice’ was that of a supernatural entity, or merely a figment of Ruby’s childhood imagination, it served to dramatically change her outlook on life. “The voice, though, still echoed in her head, and after that night she became like one born with a caul over one’s face, knowing of things other never would.” (p. 103) The experience had left Ruby more independent, rejecting any paternal expectations she held of her father. This can be witnessed in the bitter tone she uses when describing him to Ada. The ‘voice’ can be considered a metaphor for nature, thus justifying Ruby’s preference to grow and hunt, rather than deal with money.
