Item Description...
Cooper's first major success, "The Spy "is also his first book set in the period of the American War of Independence. The story starts in 1870, with the household of Mr. Wharton and his daughters visited by the three men: the mysterious Mr. Harper, an American loyalist; Captain Henry Wharton, the son of the house and an officer in the British Army; and Mr. Harvey Birch, suspected of being a British spy. The differing loyalties of these men are reflected in the differing loyalties of the household they visit, with the father trying to remain neutral, his daughter Sarah a supporter of the British and his other daughter Frances supporting the American rebels. The futures of these characters become inextricably linked as they face not only the perils of war, but also the sufferings of the human heart.

More About James Fenimore Cooper

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! James Fenimore Cooper (1789-1851) grew up at Otsego Hall, his father s manorial estate near Lake Otsego in upstate New York. Educated at Yale, he spent five years at sea, as a foremast hand and then as a midshipman in the navy. At thirty he was suddenly plunged into a literary career when his wife challenged his claim that he could write a better book that the English novel he was reading to her. The result was Precaution (1820), a novel of manners. His second book, The Spy (1821), was an immediate success, and with The Pioneers (1823) he began his series of Leatherstocking Tales. By 1826 when The Last of the Mohicans appeared, his standing as a major novelist was clearly established. From 1826 to 1833 Cooper and his family lived and traveled in France, Switzerland, Italy, and Germany. Two of his most successful works, The Prairie and The Red Rover, were published in 1827. He returned to Otsego Hall in 1834, and after a series of relatively unsuccessful books of essays, travel sketches, and history, he returned to fiction and to Leatherstocking with The Pathfinder (1840) and The Deerslayer (1841). In his last decade he faced declining popularity brought on in part by his waspish attacks on critics and political opponents. Just before his death in 1851 an edition of his works led to a reappraisal of his fiction and somewhat restored his reputation as the first of American writers."

James Fenimore Cooper lived in Burlington Burlington Burlin. James Fenimore Cooper was born in 1789 and died in 1851.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Major John André was recently hung for spying  Jan 30, 2008
The is here adventure enough and romance for all.
A visit home to see the family turns bad
for a British Captain of Infantry.
A peddler ans a gentleman stranger are what the plot turns on.
Here are "Cowboys" as mounted British soldiers before the modern
cowboy was thought of.
Here are spies and daring escapes in the middle of raging war.
All this takes in rural 1780's New York.
It isn't as good or as bad as some of Cooper's writing,
but it is well told with some surprises along the way.
