Dear She of the Natty Bumppo mentality...alias Gayle
When I was little and growing up in New York State, one of my favorite things to do was to imagine the countryside as it would have looked before European entrance and expansion. In my very romantic little heart, imagining that I was seeing the actual rolling, forest-covered hills of the 16- or 1700s before me gave me quite a thrill. So, to see them unfold before me in the film (played by the NC mountains) was a very powerful experience. Then that opening chase through the forest cemented it for me (pun intended!).
I think many of us are very emotionally attached to the vanished forests and wildlands of early America.
