: Hi! I'm new here, & I like what I've seen so far!
: I loved LOTM, and also "Stolen Women, Captured Hearts". So I decided to look for more information about this "true" story.
: I searched for Anna Brewster Morgan, and sure enough, she was for real. But the ending to her true story was very different than that in the movie (surprise, surprise)-- much sadder. : (
: And no, she did not end up with "Tokala". (sorry, fans!)
: I am an incurable romantic, and not really a purist, but it got me to thinking about how movies change the endings of a true story (Stolen Women...) or a piece of literature (LOTM). In LOTM, I much prefer the movie to the book, so I don't mind the changes. My romantic side will always rule!
Welcome to Mohicanland! Nice to hear from you. You are in good company here, if you are a romantic, that's for sure. Many of us are guilty of the same affliction. As for preferring LOTM The Movie to LOTM The Book, you also have plenty of company here, myself included, although there are a lot of others here who are real Cooperphiles and love all of the Leatherstocking Tales. You'll find lots of opinions, ideas, and laughter on this board, and tons of info all over this site. Don't forget to stop by Storefronts on the Frontier, as well, and take a look at all the gifts and collectibles available! Want a pair of earrings exactly like those worn by Uncas? They're here! How about a straw hat a la Miss Cora? They've got 'em! Everything from Chingachgook's choker to a handmade replica of Hawkeye's Killdeer can be found and ordered directly from the Mohican Press Storefronts. Check it out!
And don't forget to post often, so we can get to know you. You may even want to pick out a "persona" and join us in our imaginary village of Mohicanland...Miss Marcia will make you a nice platter of her famous DownHome fuu-uuuuudge to welcome you, and if you're very good, Sassy Soothsayer might take you for a ride on her Purple Paisley Magic Carpet! ;o)
