I know this is slightly off topic, but I grew up in Scarsdale, NY, which was apparently James Fenimore Cooper's home town, and there are a number of things around town, such as streets, named after him. Having never read his work, I can say nothing about its quality.

His stories are entertaining and highly inaccuarte historically. Since i posted above that i had never read any of his sea stories, i have read Wing and Wing; although melodramatic in the preferred manner of his day, he is far more accurate in describing ships and the sea than he is with his fantasy world about the Indians.

You can read Wing and Wing by clicking here. Look at the left-hand side about half-way down, and the text is available chapter by chapter.

Posted without reading the thread, huh?

Kenneth Roberts was mentioned in the fourth post.
