When I read this book as a child, I was drawn, for the first time, into a serious case of hero worship. Cooper makes Hawkeye a believable character, a little flawed, a little human.
I hung on the edge of my seat as the destiny of each character was revealed, and felt empathy for Hawkeye as he experienced losses, but still managed to bravely "soldier on". I think I learned how to handle disappoints that life may offer with dignity from the characters in this book (and the other Leatherstocking Tales...I'm very glad that I read this book, and I look forward to re-reading it again soon.
