    My least favorite Cooper novel so far.

    Written to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the beginnings of the American Revolution, Lionel Lincoln was a radically new experiment in historical fiction. To recreate its events with the utmost accuracy, Cooper visited Boston in person in 1824 to study buildings and terrain, examine battlefields, read affidavits, consult records of the weather, and compare primary sources. George Bancroft declared in 1852 that Cooper had described the battle of Bunker Hill better than it is described in any other work.

    Announced as the first in a series of Legends of the Thirteen Republics, Lionel was the only book of the series to be written, perhaps because it contained what Cooper wished to say at the time about the Revolution. Despite some improbable elements, it retains interest and pertinence today as an interpretation of the tensions--social, political, and military-- that erupted in 1775.

    The information above came from the following website:

    It starts off so well. Lionel Lincoln arrives in Boston, seeking a house and a person in particular. Before you know what hits you, it's the Battle of Bunker Hill, described in thrilling, thunderous tones, and then... it's like Fenimore Cooper peaked somewhere in the middle and didn't quite know where to go. This is often said to be Fenimore Cooper's worst: it isn't, and it is far from being bad; it's readable, very enjoyable at times, and yet it doesn't quite come together. I suspect he had Mohicans on his mind...
