I liked this novel. However, I find it somehow too wordy, over descriptive and slow. Judith Hutter is a beautiful, strong-welled character who possesses several admirable traits, like intelligence, bravery and a loving devotion to her sister. On the other hand, In Natty Bumppo, represents the American hero: selfless, dependable, restrained, tolerant, and moral, but he had an outstanding flaw; his inability to deal successfully with women, which I consider as a major flaw. Cooper is over the top ...more

Anyone remember the movie speed with Keeianna Reeves ( otherwise known for his award wining role in bill and teds big adventure), how you kept thinking the movie was over, but it wasn't. That was deer slayer for me. Actually I thought it would make a good movie, especially since I did enjoy Last of the Mohicans (the movie) so much. Not a lot of depth, just adventure, but often entertaining.
This is an oldie but a goodie. There is not much to be said about that hasn't already been said many times over this book's very long life. Modern readers may find it's writing to be old fashioned and wordy. Chat's because it is. If anyone hasn't read it yet, might want to think about it.

Great book. This is the book written before Last of the Mohicans. I really enjoyed listening to the book tape. It was written in 1841 so the language and expressions are unique and add greatly to the experience of reading such a text.

Amazing! What an adventure, and beautiful description of Upstate NY!

Good story and series (same series as The Last of Mohicans).

“We live in a world of transgressions and selfishness, and no pictures that represent us otherwise can be true; though happily for human nature, gleamings of that pure spirit in whose likeness man has been fashioned, are to be seen, relieving its deformities, and mitigating, if not excusing its crimes.” 4 likes
“On the human imagination events produce the effects of time. Thus he who has travelled far and seen much is apt to fancy that he has lived long; and the history that most abounds in important incidents soonest assumes the aspect of antiquity. In no other way can we account for the venerable air that is already gathering around American annals. When the mind reverts to the earliest days of colonial history, the period seems remote and obscure, the thousand changes that thicken along the links of recollections, throwing back the origin of the nation to a day so distant as seemingly to reach the mists of time; and yet four lives of ordinary duration would suffice to transmit, from mouth to mouth, in the form of tradition, all that civilized man has achieved within the limits of the republic.....Thus, what seems venerable by an accumulation of changes is reduced to familiarity when we come seriously to consider it solely in connection with time.” 2 likes
