""Bill Christophersen's recent work, Resurrecting Leather-Stocking: Pathfinding in Jacksonian America (2019), is an excellent new resource for both students and scholars. The book offers an organizational structure that is practical for pedagogical uses.""—Resources for American Literary Study
""[A] fantastic multi-layered introduction to the writer's heralded Leather-Stocking series, including a strong defense of The Pathfinder, perhaps the most neglected novel within the series.""—The James Fenimore Cooper Society Newsletter
"Bill Christopersen has given us a sharp-witted new reading of Cooper's chief accomplishment. By situating the five Leather-Stocking novels in their proper political and cultural contexts, he provides all sorts of new insights into the period and its chief novelist. Resurrecting Leather-Stocking richly delivers on the promise of its title."—Wayne Franklin, University of Connecticut, Storrs
