Two men, one on the left of the still figure, one on the right, sat on the bed and prepared chillum pipes. On the wall above, directly over the head of the dead or deeply sleeping man, was a huge painting of Zoroaster, the prophet of the Parsi faith. He was a foreigner, like myself, but taller: his long body and even longer legs sprawled in the chair as if he was floating in a bath.

Cold Mountain is a 1997 historical novel by Charles Frazier which won the . National Book Award for Fiction.

The Mountain Between Us is a romance and an adventure/survival story. I didn't find the book to be really heavy on the romance, but everyone knows what happens when a man and a woman survive a plane crash together (Spoiler alert: they end up together). There were a lot of differences between the book and the movie; whoever wrote the script took a lot of creative license with the book, but for the most part I think the changes that were made resulted in a better plot for the movie. The book reminded me of a Nicholas Sparks book (which you have to be in the mood for), with a little less romance and more focus on survival.

The book is a story of survival against all odds, enduring as a people and religion largely because surrounding society would not really allow full assimilation; even those who were forced or socially obliged to convert to Christianity were never trusted and assumed to be cryptic Jews.

"One Man Against the Mountain" is a slightly fictionalized account of an outdoorsman's quest to prove that he could survive through a winter at high elevations in the Big Horn Mountains near Sheridan, Wyoming. Living in a canvas tent, relying on supplies he had brought in on horseback the previous fall and occasional help from people who had told him he was crazy to try this quest, he not only survived but learned a lot about himself and the generosity of others. Danny Longwell, a Sheridan, Wyoming, resident and his two dogs lived through brutal subzero temperatures and deadly blizards, cutting wood to fire the small wood stove that kept the temperature inside the tent survivable. Longwell kept a journal of his adventure, and excerpts from the journal are used throughout the book, as well as photographs he took during his time on 'the mountain.'
