I Don't Think Mark Twain Liked James Fenimore Cooper's Witings

"it seems to me that "Deerslayer" is just simply a literary delirium tremens."

Much more here.

I must have read this in junior high or high school, for I remember his description of the 6 indians leaping from a sapling, but had forgotten it was Twain who wrote of it somewhat critically. Good points on the shooting match, as well.
