Cooper, J Fenimore: The Pioneers V1 April 28 2007

My first attempt at uploading a book. Special request by astra_lestat for some J fenimore Cooper, particularly the Leatherstocking series.

Wikipedia recommends reading in the order they were published, not the order in which the action takes place, so here is the first.

To be honest, all I've done is tidy up the quotes at the start of each chapter, added a TOC and some cover art.

I'm not sure how much an improvement this is particularly afet Natch found;
Quote:
I've poked around some more, and I'm not finding much that's any more complete than the Gutenberg texts, and Manybooks.net will output an LRF for you on the fly. I'm not really in a position at the moment to go re-scanning them from scratch, and I'm a bit reluctant to duplicate Manybooks' effort unless I can find something more than just cover art to add to the mix.
So unless there's aburning need for the rets of this series, I'll probably knock it on the head. Was good practice though and easier than I'd imagined thanks BD.

If anyone has any pointers to improve on it for next time please let me know

I haven't read any Cooper myself, but one of my friends, whose literary opinions I very much respect, told me recently that he'd tried to read "Last of the Mohicans" and had to give up half way through, because he found it such heavy going, and this is a guy who can lap up "War and Peace" with no problems at all!

It is ironic, but it was the other way around with me (Tolstoy vs. Cooper ), though I was much much younger then. As I said I really liked the first 3 books but could not get through The Pioneers I thought it was too boring, but we change as we grow up. Cannot imagine how I would respond to Last of the Mohican or The Pioneers today.
