A very special good morning to you, Vickie. Welcome to MohicanLand!

I was poking around the web and found an interesting article about Lee Teter. Teter is a talented artist whose specialty is accuracy in his well researched historical work.

Apparently Teters was called upon by Mann for advise for the making of LOTM. One of his pieces in the article looks alot like Magua, especially the leggings.

Here is a small portion of this exellent article, by David Arnold, complete with samles of Teters work. WARNING: This article contains critisms of the beloved JFC!!!

~~~ James Fenimore Cooper created novels about the frontier that became popular in the 1830's. His books, such as The Last of the Mohicans and The Pathfinder, stereotyped inaccuracies. Cooper's books were reinforced by the similarly emotionalize illustrations that went with and were inspired by the books. The stereotypes never died...~~~

Here is a link ( I tested it this time!!) to the rest of this very interesting article.
