Actually, I've never read James Fenimore Cooper's The Deerslayer, but The Last of The Mohicans is on my bookshelf. Several copies--I collect vintage versions. I hadn't read it until after I'd read Mark Twain's essay/review, and then the classic novel read more like a comedy (which it definitely wasn't meant to be.)
This post is a tribute to my man, and his favorite day of the year, bar none. The first day of Rifle Season.
Go get 'em, Deerie.
