: : This may be old news to the die-hard Mohican fan at this board, but I'll still post it for the newbies like me.
: : LOTM is available in audiobook format. There are 3 versions that I have found. Two are abridged and both and under $20. The unabridged version is a little saltier at $89.
: : Happy reading or listening (whatever your preference), RR
: Thanks for posting about the audio version of LOTM. For those who may not be aware of it, we do have a Book Store page with listings from Amazon.com. There are many book, video, and audio titles that some of you may be interested in (Audio LOTM, Francis Parkman, F & I War, Cooper "critiques", and more....).
: RR, I'll up Bill's bid $1.00....................
: She-Who-Has-Tracked-Le Longue Carabine,
: There is a book you may be interested in. "William Cooper's Town; Power and Persuasion on the Frontier of the Early American Republic", written by Alan Taylor, is an examination of Cooper and his father "the judge", and the politics at play in the young republic. Taylor has done exhaustive research on the early development of Cooperstown, the relationship between father and son Cooper, and has included some info on the persons who influenced Cooper's character creations. Taylor has a bit on David Shipman (Hawkeye/Natty) that you will find interesting.
: Glad you found the archived messages! There's a lot of good stuff in there....................
Well, Ms. E., here's a serious post from me that does not
include the words "naked" or "loincloth"...can you stand
the shock? Anyway, I checked out your Mohican book
archive, and it's outstanding. Here's a few more titles you
might want to check into. All are set in colonial American,
all are written from the female POV. For nonfiction, Laurel
Ulrich's "The Midwife's Tale" based on the diaries of
a New England midwife is excellent. Two fiction titles by
Margaret Lawrence are "Hearts and Bones," and the
sequel "Blood Red Roses." They are the best books
I've read in years. A long-time favorite author of mine
is Janice Holt Giles -- her first book, "Hannah Fowler",
is set in 1750's Cain-tuck-ee. She wrote a whole series
based on the Fowler family -- start with Hannah and I
guarantee you'll want to read them all.
