: : Although " Grey Owl" aka Archibald Belaney had his shortcomings my post wasn't meant to diminish the important work he has done in Canada. He was our country's first conservationist and a trust fund to protect the environment has been named after him..Just wanted to clear this up..
: : I hope to see this movie soon...

: Rebecca, after reading the info on the site you mentioned, I found myself very curious to learn more about this guy. Do you suppose he felt his conservation view would be taken more seriously if people thought he was a native? Or do you think he just wanted to be one so badly, he convinced everyone, and possibly himself, too, that he WAS?


Goodness! I had forgotten what got me thinking about this imitator issue. I also looked in on the site, Rebecca! I look forward to this movie as well. Marcia, I gathered from the site he wanted to be native very badly. It will be fun wiewing with these questions in mind and posting impressions afterwards. I love Mohicanland!
