: As all, I am a LOTM fan (and F & I reenactor) but have not seen any comments about "Derslayer, aka: Pathfinder, aka: Hawkeye, aka Nathaniel Bumppo. Not only are these great books by James Fenimore Cooper but there are some fine old movies also. There was a lot more to Master Bumppo than meets the cimematic eye! Greetings from the heart of the F & I battlefields in central NY.
Hi Paul ...
If you look around the Site (especially Mohican Musings) & read some of the archived posts, you will find quite a bit on Mr. Bumppo. There are some great threads regarding Pathfinder/Deerslayer/Hawkeye, etc.
There is also a very thorough contribution on Natty's life & times written by Gayle.
Discussions on the many faces of Mr. Natty Bumppo can be found peppered throughout the archived boards.
Glad you dropped in ... happy hunting!
Perhaps, you might find the Musing linked below on the proto-Hawkeye a good jumping off point.
