About Book

Book Description
The Oak Openings is one of James Fenimore Cooper's late novels that never got included among his classics but is regarded by some as a classic. Perhaps best known for his novel The Last of the Mohicans, Cooper wrote extensively about the American Indians, and that idea is alive in this book as well, with the theme of the Indians as the lost tribe of Israel. It is the only novel he ever wrote that is set in Michigan. It's also a story about raising bees, and is alternately known as The Bee-Hunter

Either it was so, or my fears made it SEEM so. The two canoes that passed first were well filled with Injins, each having eight in it; while the one that came last held but four warriors. They were a mile apart, and the last canoe seemed to be trying to overtake the others. I did think that nothing but their haste prevented the men in the last canoe from landing; but my fears may have made that seem so that was not so.
