"The Chainbearer; or The Littlepage Manuscripts is a novel by the American novelist James Fenimore Cooper first published in 1845. The Chainbearer is the second book in a trilogy starting with Satanstoe and ending with The Redskins. The novel focuses mainly on issues of land ownership and the displacement of American Indians as the United States moves Westward. Critical to the trilogy of these novels, is the sense of expansion through the measuring and acquisition of land by civilization.The title The Chainbearer represents ”the man who carries the chains in measuring the land, the man who helps civilization to grow from the wilderness, but who at the same time continues the chain of evil, increases the potentiality for corruption.” The central position of the ”Chainbearer” allows Cooper to deal with the cultural lack of understanding Native Americans had of European concepts of land ownership. This in turn allows Cooper to critique ownership in general. Also, Cooper, like in many of his novels, focuses on the growing corruption of individuals in ”civilization” as it expands. This Cooper attributes ”an inherent principle in the corrupt nature of man to misuse all his privileges. . . . If history proves anything, it proves this.” Two characters, in particular, represent this growing corruption of civilization, Andries Mordaunt, the chainbearer, and Aaron, known as ”Thousandacres”. The men represent different types of the civilization," - Back cover

The Pathfinder. by James Fenimore Cooper( Book )

4 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Pathfinder,Cooper resuscitated the figure of Natty Bumppo, returning the Leather-Stocking to the New York forest. The imagination that revived Natty from the grave was intent on the author's own return, not just to modes he had seemingly abandoned, but to a position of moral authority in a republic about which he was deeply worried. Although Cooper still believed in the democratic-republican creed of Jefferson and Jackson, he agreed with the Commodore in Home as Found that America most of all needed "Washington and Natty Bumppo" again. As for the second part of that team, Cooper was only to happy to oblige. He offered him as "the Pathfinder" (another of his happy coinages in the series of novels)--Pathfinder for the nation, not just for Mabel Dunham and her party. Natty Bumppo would come to play a crucial role in the book because of its eventually amphibious nature--for the book as finished combined Cooper's two most successful arenas of action, the forest and the sea. The Pathfinder would also, and again with regard to Natty, fuse adventure tale with love plot. Cooper had made love part of his stories in the previous Leather-Stocking Tales, but (with the notable exception of Cora and Uncas in The Last of the Mohicans) always among his upper-class white characters, so that Natty's new vulnerability to sexual passion marks a turn in the class dynamics of Cooper's fiction. Natty is not the stoic, sexless figure of the first three books but rather a man of flesh and blood. He also has a more truly social existence than the three earlier books accorded him" --

The spy by James Fenimore Cooper( Book )

5 editions published between 2002 and 2016 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inspired by accusations of venality leveled at the men who captured Major Andre (Benedict Arnold's co-conspirator, executed for espionage in 1780), Cooper's novel centers on Harry Birch, a common man wrongly suspected by well-born Patriots of being a spy for the British. Even George Washington, who supports Birch, misreads the man, and when Washington offers him payment for information vital to the Patriot's cause, Birch scorns the money and asserts that his action were motivated not by financial reward, but by his devotion to the fight for independence. A historical adventure tale reminiscent of Sir Walter Scott's Waverley novels, The Spy is also a parable of the American experience, a reminder that the nation's survival, like its Revolution, depends on judging people by their actions, not their class or reputations
