: Much fuzzier, thanks. I will go back and look at the book again, too. For some reason I didn't remember Chingachgook refering to Uncas as "my boy" except in the movie. Oh well, you can see how I'm beginning to merge the book and the movie in my mind. Darn Mann for creating such a seductively great film. It ruins the best of literary purists! ;-)
Nah, Gaylee...you're still on track. If my memory serves me correctly, Chingachgook never calls Uncas "my boy" in the movie. He does call him "my son," however, and refers to Hawkeye as his "white son." So, you were remembering from the book, after all, and just didn't realize it. Even MORE confusing, eh?
