I m going to assert with some confidence that this is the earliest novel to take conservationism as its theme and considering it is 200 years old that is uite an accomplishment while his contemporaries were only just awakening to the destructive side of the Industrial Revolution Cooper already seems to sense it here even though the setting is far from the factory life that was producing the destruction The first Leatherstocking Tale to be written but not the earliest in the chronology of the protagonist s life it misses a few reiterations of the following tales the names Deerslayer is missing Hawk Eye s jauntiness is faded and the romance of the younger protagonists is somewhat muted Nonetheless Cooper takes a good stab at the formula that serve him well with The Last of the MohicansWithout spoilers Cooper surveys a vanishing way of life the intimate connection of the people with their natural world and does so while looking at the very pioneers who were exploring that wilderness simultaneously employing its resources while the younger generation was starting to misuse those same resources for greed or even momentary enjoyment Our protagonist is a full 70 years old and clearly is guiding the characters and we the reader into respecting that wilderness and not abusing its bounty Several characters do the opposite Add the fact that it is set 30 years prior to its composition and we have a significant case that Cooper was ringing the alarm bell on overexploitation of his beloved rural upstate New York what were his thoughts on the Erie Canal being built at that moment This one is easy to underrate but its vivid descriptions of winter life on the frontier as well as a pulse pounding and emotional ending establishes that Cooper found his feet with this one and that the triumph of Last of the Mohicans the following year started here

The Pioneers or The Sources of the Susuehanna; a Descriptive Tale Free download Ú PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Train;Vapors and clouds and storms” Thomso. This is my second reading of this novel One reason I chose it now is because the story begins on Christmas Eve 1793 in a settlement named Templeton begun by a Judge named Marmaduke Temple based on James Feni Cooper s father William Cooper a Judge who started the Central New York Settlement of Cooperstown the same location as the Baseball Hall of Fame It is located on the Otsego Lake one of the sources of the Susuehanna River and is the same location as his novel The Deerslayer chronologically the first in this series when Natty and Chingachgook are in there early twenties It begins with a sleigh ride returning Judge Temple and his daughter Bess to their home when the judge sees a buck darting nearby and decides to try to kill it He misses and instead inadvertently wounds a fellow hunter Oliver Edwards a young newcomer to Templeton who is friends with Natty Bumppo or Leatherstocking as he is known in this story Hawkeye of The Last of the Mohicans fame Oliver kills the buck and the judge becomes indebted to him as compensation for this wound This begins the theme of the novel which is the encroachment of civilization versus natureAlthough it is the fourth in the five Leatherstocking Tales chronologically it was the first one written As the story is also titled as a descriptive story and the theme involves the friction between the rapid growth of civilization and law on the border of the frontier and the last vestiges of the life of those who lived prior to this time who lived off the land Nature and in the wild such as Hawkeye There is less action and romance in this tale than there are in the future tales of Natty The Last of the Mohicans Deerslayer and Pathfinder in which our protagonist is in the prime of life In this story he is about 70 years old and is a rather crabby old man who resents the encroachment of civilization One thing I always remembered about my first reading was the Christmas Eve meal at the Judge s mansion which featured a Roast Turkey a boiled turkey a chine backbone of a bear and a fricassee made of grey suirrelsyum The author wrote this in 1823 At the time of this story he would have been about 4 5 years old living in CooperstownAlso the way the author builds the tension during the turkey shoot on Christmas Day between Hawkeye and Billy Kirby The characters are based on people the author knew or were a composite of

The Pioneers or The Sources of the Susuehanna; a Descriptive Tale Free download Ú PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free CHAPTER I“See Winter comes to rule the var. the long version is here otherwise read on I m of two minds about this novel and my ambiguity has to do with Cooper s writing style First let me say that I m no stranger to older works with long drawn out phrasing or archaic writing styles I figure it s a given that these are books from the past and they certainly weren t designed with our modern streamlined reading styles in mind That s not the issue here Instead it s like the main threads of the narratives in this book are sort of buried under a barrage of description that tends to go on and on and on before you get back to the storylines that you re reading the book for in the first place On the other hand The Pioneers is very much worth reading as a novel strongly concerned with among other things environmental stewardship it is also a book that Cooper wrote in my opinion to offer his readers a look at the American wilderness as people began to settle there much as in his own life his father had played a major role in the settlement of Cooperstown The novel also touches on the issue of the creation application and enforcement of law as civilization encroaches into the wilderness Natty Bumppo the Leatherstocking has lived in the forests and in nature for most of his life before civilization had even arrived there and he has his own ideas about the valueapplication of laws And for those readers who are entertained by plot and aren t really into the messageshistory woven into novels there s also a storyline complete with love interest that centers around a mysterious young man who is accidentally shot by Judge Marmaduke Temple in his efforts to shoot a deerThe bottom line for me is that it was a tough novel to read because speaking in our 21st century parlance the writing itself tends to be all over the map with long interludes of description that seem to take forever before the author returns to the narrative but when all is said and done the environmental issues that are brought up in this book are than relevant to modern concerns So back to being of two minds if you can make it through the laborious writing style there s a really good story or two or three hidden in this novel I m happy I read it although now I m thinking that maybe I ll pass on the others for the moment

It's such a mess just don't bother
