: : : :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.

Yes, I've mentioned it before, but wasn't sure if anyone else saw what I thought I saw. At Cameron's cabin Mrs. Cameron brought up the subject of Uncas not being settled down with a wife yet. And she seemed to keep an eye on him during that scene. Uncas seemed very fond of her son, wrestling with him and teasing him. Also after the massacre Uncas comes upon her body and checks her neck wound and then presses her arm sorrowfully. Hawkeye seems to be especially sympathetic to Uncas after they survey the remains, as though Uncas had a special connection to the Camerons. I wasn't sure if there was sister-brother affection there or something else. Sure am curious as to what others think about this.
