: : On the subject of Running Deer or Elk ... my thoughts when I watch this scene are that Chingachgook (who is not with Uncas & Hawkeye) is running somewhere behind the elk, perhaps to keep it on the move, and Hawkeye & Uncas are running to cut it off. Perhaps they know where it will head & have taken a short cut?
: : Is my interpretation possible? Anyone?
: I think that is, more or less, exactly what Mark is saying. That was the plan, embellished by a bit of dramatics to lure us all in ... and boy, DOES IT!!
I guess I haven't read all of the latest comments from Mark. I just remembered all the earlier discussion over how impossible it would be for men to actually chase down an elk. And I remember thinking, "surely they were trying to head it off, not chase it down." I'll go read the new stuff & get up to date on what's actually going on here on the site! I've been a BAD Mohican Mama! Sorry, RichFed!
