The first of the five Leatherstocking Tales, The Pioneers is perhaps the most realistic and beautiful of the series.

I thought this story was about the abuse of native type people by settlers, but it's a love story! Very exciting, the descriptions are word pictures that make you feel that you are seeing things yourself.

Since I live in the area, it makes me want to go to Cooperstown & try to find the area talked about! Is Mt. Vision in walking distance? ( )

Long and laborious reading. The plots were vague.
This is more of a narrative of how life was in early settlements of the frontier. ( )

The first 200 pages of this book were just awful--the first day literally ends on the 200th page, so you can imagine how overwrought with detail the prose is--but the story got pretty good after that.

I probably wouldn't recommend going out of your way to read The Pioneers, but if you've started struggling through it already, you should soldier on to the end. ( )

Simple ways of life abandoned in favor of progress.
No respect for balance in nature and men don't respect each other
Righteousness exists in some people who clash with people who believe in might beats right . Proud that I finished this. ( )

This must surely be one of the worst novels ever written. Check this out from the beginning of chapter 29:

“When Marmaduke Temple and his cousin rode through the gate of the former, the heart of the father had been too recently touched with the best feeling of our nature, to leave inclination for immediate discourse.”

Now that doesn't happen by accident, does it? He's written that on purpose and published it because he thinks it's good. Frightening. I read it to my mum and she got really angry on my behalf and asked why I didn't stop reading. Unfortunately I've started the series so now I have to finish. I could quote any number of passages which are equally bad or worse. A particular low point is the conversation between Richard and Agamemnon in chapter 32. I'll not quote that because I don't want anything so racist showing up under my name.

To put things in perspective, this is the best of the Leatherstocking series so far. The earlier novels suffered from their attempts to be adventure stories. Every time they build up to action you live in hope, only again and again to be subjected to frustration and disappointment by Cooper's determined incompetence. That doesn't happen here because not only does nothing happen, nothing ever looks like it's about to happen. What you're left with is deep, utter and complete boredom. It will seem like there's no end to it, but I promise you there is: I experienced the end earlier today and am currently basking in the glow that follows it.

This Everyman editions a nice one, with a sensible introduction that as much as admits that the book is a piece of shit, and in place of notes (which you don't really need), you have a selection of Cooper related criticism. ( )

As this work professes, in its title-page, to be a descriptive tale,
they who will take the trouble to read it may be glad to know how much
of its contents is literal fact, and how much is intended to represent
a general picture.
Near the centre of the great State of New-York lies an extensive district of country, whose surface is a succession of hills and dales, or, to speak with greater deference to geographical definitions, of mountains and valleys.
