: If you like social and feminist issues, he's got some awfully good books about those, too. "Precaution" is the mirror image of Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice", but I think, a much more interesting story. "Ways of the Hour" is a real ripper - that's the one I posted about before that could pass for a 1990s Grisham trial novel. "The Oak Openings" is a good Indian story, and you will recognize a scene in it that was lifted for LOTM. "The Wept of Wish Ton Wish" deals with a Quaker girl who is captured by the Indians and truly loves her Indian husband, much to the dismay of her family when they finally find her.
Gayle, I'm a huge fan of Jane Austin and read P&P at least once a year. I'm very interested now in "Precaution". And being a complete romantic, I'll have to read "The Wept of Wish Ton Wish" as you said.
I suppose though, having got half-way through LOTM, I should finish all the Leatherstockings first. There's an order to them, isn't there? It's all in one of those extensive analyses somewhere on this vast LOTM website.
Thanks for the tip!!
