I am continuing to enjoy this too-much-maligned classic. Sure, Cooper overdoes the writing sometimes, but every great writer has faults, and I find more to love in this story than to criticize. Judith Hutter, for example, is a very interesting and multi-dimensional character. This sentence is just one example of what makes here so intriguing: "I have have known you but a day, Deerslayer, but it has awakened the confidence of a year."
