: : : : A good Custer book??? Hey, I'm still slogging through "Deerslayer" (oh, oh, ducking so that Gayle doesn't fling her bees at me....)
: : : (TPFKA) Jo
: : : Dear Jo,
: : : Not to worry. Can't fling bees at you. They started to get a little rambunctious, so I closed them all in the hive and told them they couldn't come out until they had read the first 15 chapters of "The Deerslayer" as a calming exercise. I haven't heard from them since, and it's been a week now. Strange snoring sounds coming from the hive on occasion, but otherwise it's very peaceful.

: : ______________
: : Hey, Gayle..
: : I'm sitting very very far away from the nearest wall; and have made it through several chapters of Deerslayer....and; dare I say it....oh, the wall is shuddering...I am enjoying it....
: : Still slogging through it...
: : thanks for all of your good words about Cooper...
: : (TPFKA) Jo
: : Dear Jo,
: : Glad to hear you're still slogging through. Maybe before I go spewing more good words about Cooper for the edification of the Mohicanland Book Club (Cooper Branch), we should tell each other where we all are in the story at this point. How about if each person gives a short recap of what they have read so far, so we all land in the same place?
: : And what do you THINK is going to happen to the various characters?
: : Gayle
: I think I missed some info along the way. I have read through Ch. 3 of Deerslayer but will continue on. I also read through Ch. 3 of Res. Blues. Is the discussion on hold for that one? (Somehow I had the idea that the discussion was going to go back and forth with the two books.) Can you clue me in? Thanks.
I thought for sure we were to start a discussion on Reservation Blues today. Been playing my Robert Johnson CD. I even got all dolled up in my favorite sweats.
I have only read three or four chapters. I am just getting into the "redemption" line of the story. Thomas doesn't think he deserves to be famous or successful. I am very curious to see if he is 'redeemed' and how.
Does anyone know who the voice belongs to that comes from the guitar?
Do any of you have any thoughts on what you have read so far?
