I think I missed something - why does everyone think the homesteader gal was interested in Uncy? (as if any woman wouldnt be of course!!)???
: : : I think they should have gone for it - and to hell

: : vaguely remember a mini series or drama a while ago
: : that dealt with this issue where a widowed settler

: : : : So what do you think?
: : : : Shivering at my computer

: : :Interesting question you raise about Cora & Chingachook on whether they would've approved. I would think Cora would considering she fell in love with Hawkeye ( he is not Indian but was raised in and adopted their ways). I don't know about Chingachook. 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.
