The Short Stories of James Fenimore Cooper. The short story is often viewed as an inferior relation to the Novel. But it is an art in itself. To take a story and distil its essence into fewer pages while keeping character and plot rounded and driven is not an easy task. Many try and many fail. In this series we look at short stories from many of our most accomplished writers. Miniature masterpieces with a lot to say. In this volume we examine some of the short stories of James Fenimore Cooper. James Fenimore Cooper was born in Burlington, New Jersey on September 15, 1789. He lived most of his life in Cooperstown, New York (established by his father William). Cooper attended Yale university but was expelled. He joined the US Navy as a Midshipman which was to provide much influence and research materials for his later writings. A Naval historian as well his works were widely received though some thought parts were not as accurate as they should be. However he is forever associated with one great book Last Of The Mohicans. His output was prolific and included the famed Leatherstocking series. For a short period in the mid 1820s he moved his family to Europe to attempt to gain a better income from his books and to have his children educated better. He was wildly popular as an author with his blend of history and romance. Here we bring you his short stories which are a fascinating insight to his view on life. He died of dropsy on September 14, 1851, the day before his 62nd birthday. Some of these stories are also available as an audiobook from our sister company Word Of Mouth. Many samples are at our youtube channel Index Of Stories; The Eclipse; The Lake Gun; Imagination
