"The Deerslayer"

"Muskrat Castle", the Hutters' home in the middle of Glimmerglass

 The reading today told of an amazing incident in which Hetty Hutter steals away at night in one of the canoes, apparently to try to reach her father and Hurry Harry, who have been kidnapped by the Iroquois. Cooper described it beautifully -- Hetty standing in the canoe away off in the darkness and Deerslayer, Judith, and Chingachook too far away to catch her and bring her back.
