Description
"It is scarcely necessary to dwell on the scenes that occurred between the time I first sprang from the earth and that in which I was 'pulled'." A pocket handkerchief tells its story—from a flax field in Normandy to its creation in war-torn Paris, and on to respectable Manhattan society—in this 1843 novella by James Fenimore Cooper. As it travels, the handkerchief retains a clairvoyant connection with its various owners. Significant for its surprising narrative voice and its exploration of French and American cultures, this delightfully quirky satire marks a radical departure from Cooper's The Last of the Mohicans and the other Leatherstocking Tales.
