Summary
This study explores the making and remaking of media versions of Cooper's classic frontier novel. It shows that each new rendering extends to its audience a dynamic image of the American myth. Along with the appeal of frontier adventure these media adaptations bear the weight of powerful meanings. Each new version addresses these meanings differently and raises questions about wilderness and frontier, about western expansion, about the relationship between men and women, about the association of whites with "Indians." In addressing the question of what the media find perennially attractive in Cooper's classic work, this study throws a new light on the idea of frontier and on the meaning of the American Dream
