If that's the case... and from my online glimpses at various chapters... I might postpone my supremely el-cheapo act of printing out the novel online.
Perhaps I ought to leave LOTM the movie as a separate tale from the novel, and mail-order the book about Hawkeye's real-life forefathers.
How many out there have read Fenimore's original?
