: : : I'm convinced the biggest difference between this site and DDL sites is the obsession with the character rather than the actor. We live in a world where courage is rarely rewarded, and conformity is encouraged. Hawkeye represents a freedom and independence long lost and sorely missed. He's also a symbol of the truely romantic: that one man who can save us and fall forever in love with us at the same time! I've learned to be truely thankful my husband can't read my mind.

: Hey Dana, you said it: TRY to read "Deerslayer" ANYTIME....
: I've known some taciturn gentlemen friends in my day; and some motor mouths (get that watermelon!); but if any had pontificated like Hawkeye....what can I say???

Jo: I read it when I was around 12 (for pleasure !?!) and then again in a graduate course in American Lit in college. I can pass on ever reading Cooper again.....if I want a sermon, I'll go to church. I'm just grateful that along the way, so many people have felt the material was worthy of putting on film. As a book I have a hard time even remembering what it's about, but as a movie, even the bad versions are memorable. Wait till you get to LOTM! No romance for Hawkeye there.
