it was amazing

I read It a long time ago and have pleasant memories of what it left me with. The three heroes were that - heroic and nasty Magua was a thing out of nightmares sneaky and vicious. I thought Wes Studi was terrific in the Michael Mann film. I'm reading a book on what critics said about this story and how they tore it and its 'tooting' hero to pieces. It is such an intertesting study that I'm starting a blog piece on it. Not easy going as some say, but definitely a tale of the wilderness past and what it meant for people caught up in wars between the great powers of that time and the 'Indian' elements that sided with them. I've always been interested in the culture of the native American and this satisfied a part of that for me. I know it was blood thirsty and there was scalp-taking aplenty but it did have a charm all its own, even if in parts a tad long-winded.
