A brilliant book that I read when I was a teenager. Now I must see the movie... Thanks Le Loup.

I love the book too Dave, and have read it many times. This latest movie with Daniel-Day-Lewis does not strictly follow Cooper's story, but there has been more effort in regard to period authenticity, to the point of using real Indians. Well worth watchin, and I will wager you watch it more than once.
Regards.

I have the book and the DVD. Correct, the movie doesn't exactly follow the book. but enjoy it for what it is and it is a good movie.

Thanks for your comment Bob. Yes you are quite right, to make a movie that follows any book would just be too long. Just enjoy the movie for what it is.
Regards.
