were nearly so obvious! Would such a relationship, in
those times, have been allowed to continue and
flourish? Would Cora and Chingachcook(Is that the

:Interesting question you raise about Cora & Chingachook on whether they would've approved.

Perhaps he would've preferred an Indian bride for his son. But wasn't Uncas friendly with the neighbor's wife (the blonde)...sorry their names escape me at the moment.
