James only-one-n Fenimore Cooper.

You can make a good movie out of _The Last of the Mohicans_ only if
you change the protagonist's name, drop a number of the sillier
episodes, and base your script largely on older Hollywood scripts.

When the movie with Daniel Day-Lewis came out, I was moved to
reread the original.  I *REALLY* *DO* *NOT* *RECOMMEND* *THIS*.

But, if you persist, you *MUST* read the essay by Mark Twain.  It was in
some essay collection I had as an English textbook and I can still  
lying prone on the living room floor laughing uncontrollably, trying to
read the funniest bits to my father.


The mome rath isn't born that could
outgrabe me.
