: :Who is Nattie Bumppo? I've read that name in a few posts. Is this Hawkeye's formal name (or a "slang" version of it)?
Who is Nattie Bumppo, you ask? Well, first and foremost, he is Hawkeye as JF Cooper named him (yes, his formal name). Michael Mann rechristened him Nathaniel Poe (to make the M Fetish Lady-Marcia happy). Secondly, Nattie Bumppo is Gayle's Great Glorious Garrulous Guy. She tracks him everywhere! And she has asserted her claim to this Nattie Bumppo/Hawkeye/Deerslayer, etc. ... in no uncertain terms. She would, no doubt, ask not WHO is Nattie Bumppo, but WHERE is Nattie Bumppo?
I think Gayle will want to talk to you tomorrow!
