an excellent story, very realistic, the end was not what i hoped l for or my liking but... i did not write it. only problem i had with it, was the language, that made it hard to understand for me. it is written with a lot of pioneer terms and a lot of the way indians spoke: flowered, talking around the subject than getting straight to it, lots of methaphors to decipher if you can. very meaningful plot.

It is easy to mock James Fenimore Cooper and find him old fashioned, formulaic and condescending towards his Native American characters. When I first read this in college, I thought he was a kind of frontier Tom Clancy: popular, but cliched and not very good. Yet for anyone who wants to understand American lit., he remains a key figure in establishing the rules for both the western and the adventure story. Contemporary readers will find his comments on Indians, women and the wilderness interesting, if a little dated. In response to the other comment, Washington Irving was born before Cooper and was "native-born." Part of the 5-book Leahtherstocking Tales.

Let me start by saying that the movie is not only a slightly different story, the movie is a better story. The characters in the movie have more integrity. Also, the movie didn't spend 100 pages describing sticks.

An interesting question surfaced in my original copy of Trivial Pursuit:

Who was the first native American author?

In classic Trivial Pursuit style, the question is worded accurately, but it is very misleading. It is not asking about the first Native (capital N) American author. It's asking for the first native (lower-case n) American author.

James Fenimore Cooper is the answer, because he was born in the United States of America after it was officially known as the United States of America. Any American authors born before him would be considered native colonists who then became citizens of the United States of America. Confusingly, of course, Cooper wrote about Native (capital N) Americans.

After reading the answer on the back of the card, it took me quite some time to figure out what the question was really asking. I confirmed it by realizing that older versions of Trivial Pursuit would never have used a term as PC as "Native American."

I liked it, but the author could have used more voice

To be brief, the people who died should have lived, and the people who lived should have died. And the writing was stilted and unnatural, but about what I expected from this author. Gack.
