"The Deerslayer"

I continue to be impressed with Cooper's ability to create very interesting characters. Hetty Hutter is quite fascinating to me -- full of suprising thoughts and statements. In this chapter, she makes some almost Buddhist-like remarks, and what she says sounds oompletely real and true. Cooper also creates interesting but believable twists in the plot, like Hetty's returning to the Castle with a young Iroquois.
