James Fenimore Cooper - LIFE STORIES
 
 
8/27/1841     Cooper, Twain, Twigs
On this day in 1841, James Fenimore Cooper's The Deerslayer was published. This covers the earliest phase of the Leatherstocking saga, wherein the twenty-three-year-old Natty Bumppo must pass his first tests in the wilderness, rise above the worst of paleface and redskin ethics, avoid being burned at the stake, return Chingachgook's beloved Wah-ta!-Wah to him, and tell Judith that his heart belongs to the forest.
