: When the party is in the canoes, escaping the massacre, right after Hawkeye yells "head for the river!", Uncas goes overboard and gets into the other canoe, with Major Heyward and another British soldier. Exactly why does he do this? Because the canoe he's in is carrying too many? Or because he sees that they need help over there?? What? I've never been able to figure this out.
I think he went over there because one, there were so many people in the first boat (5 not including himself) and two, to help out the other boat that only had two people in it. hey and maybe even to keep major Heyward in check:)
