: : : Hi, Dana!

: : : What I loved most about the book are the descriptions of the land & lake. I could just see the Glimmerglass, and the wonderful abode in the center of it. I want to live in a house like that...except for I want mine to have hot & cold running water, electric lights, and a microwave! ;o)

: : Hi Marcia,
: : I was glad to hear you say that what caught your attention in the book was more the scenery than the characters. I was totally drawn into the place, but found myself having a hard time feeling much at all for the characters. The area described is near where I spent a lot of my childhood, and the descriptions just yanked me right back in time. No, not quite the early 1700s. I'm not *that* old yet. I think that was what first appealed to me about the movie too. NC did a good enough job of portraying NY that it took me back to my childhood fantasies- dashing heroes saving damsals in distress, etc.
: : Back to the book... BTW how many chapters were we supposed to read?
: : Chris

: Chris, Marcia, Dana and All Who Are Interested in The Deerslayer -

: I had just logged back in to ask the same question about how far to read for the next session. This time we did 3 chapters (although that was a little flexible, obviously).

: What does everybody think about shooting for the point where Deerslayer earns his new sobriquet of Hawkeye? By the way, what is the next official time? November 20? And I assume we can continue to add to the thread as comments and questions come up, although it's time for the "Indian Killer" readers come forward.

: Gayle

That sounds fine, Gayle. We'll read until Derrslayer gets his new sobriquet (gotta get that dictionary). I hope the Alexie Shermans don't start until next weekend. I'm not prepared for that class yet.

CHRIS! I hope you are mending nicely. Take 'er easy.

Dana S.
