I enjoyed the book even after learning that while this is the first of the five Leatherstocking stories chronologically, it was actually written last by Cooper. I had purchased the unabridged version read by Ray Todd but found it lacking. Peter Berkrot's reading is much better by way of accent, inflection, etc. Where his reading fails is in the recording. The audio drops out on a regular basis towards the ends of sentences. It's as if Peter pulled away from the mic at the same time he softened his tone. Listening as I did in a car, it was quite an annoyance. The producers should have caught this early on.
This isn't to say you won't like the book. The pace is as glacial as the Glimmerglass lake on which most of the story takes place. Still, though, it is quite nice to read a book from an author who so carefully spelled out the characters both in narration and dialog. Enjoy!

Loved the passion. I could almost see the characters and scenery, and action scenes. Pray-Sing-HIM-All-Ways
