: Wow, Champ! You've really been wandering these trails within our site! Thanks .....
>>Elaine, I'm the one to thank y'all, the site is wonderful & one of my all time favorite stops while on the trail ;-)
: Yes, Hawkeye was most likely a composite character. Daniel Boone, maybe Robert Rogers, definitely David Shipman, and the many anonymous "sons of a trackless forest", as Mark Baker has called them, are represented & honored by Cooper's Natty Bumppo.
>> Just a thought, but have you noticed how much DDL physically resembeled the historical Dan'l Boone?
In paticular the press shot of him holding Cora with his head turned in profile, the resemblence is startling!
