The Red Rover
The Red Rover (January 1991)
A Tale
James Fenimore Cooper - Author
Thomas Philbrick - Edited, historical notes, and introduction
Marianne Philbrick - Edited, historical notes, and introduction

Turning to his own extensive maritime experience, Cooper's novel, written in Paris in 1827, reflects his immersion in the romantic movement that was sweeping the Continent.

France (1837) was the third volume published in Cooper's Gleanings in Europe series, but first in the chronology of his European experience. Less sequential than his other travel narratives, France distills his impressions of French and European culture during his first two years abroad. Exhibiting many qualities of the familiar essay, it considers a wide range of topics of interest to Cooper, his friends, and potential readers i...(Read More)

Wyandotte, or the Hutted Knoll (June 1981)
A Tale
James Fenimore Cooper - Author
Thomas Philbrick - Edited, historical notes, and introduction
Marianne Philbrick - Edited, historical notes, and introduction

"One of the misfortunes of a nation, is to hear little besides its own praises," wrote James Fenimore Cooper in his Preface to Wyandottein 1843.
