Indeed, whether their poverty of interest be attributed to the prevalence of nationalist propaganda or some other cause, the revolutionary war novels with which I am familiar are mostly a poor lot, redeemed only by flashes of candor about the sordid motives and behavior of many partisans on both sides and by the gripping action sequences which American fictionalists from Cooper to Kenneth Roberts have always known how to bring off. Not until the conflict between the North and the South yielded fresh parallels with "the contest between the Loyalists and their opponents" did Scott's counterrevolutionary Jacobites find worthy heirs in the American historical romance.
How closely kindred are Cooper's American representatives of the forces of progress and reaction with the British ones in Waverley? Like Scott's Highland clansmen in hard practice and the Waverleys in romantic principle, Leatherstocking, Indian John, and Major Effingham all are veteran warriors who cleave anachronistically to the old heroic disciplines and values. In The Pioneers Cooper imagines, somewhat sketchily, an adventurous past for them, and in subsequent Leatherstocking tales, dealing with an earlier phase of frontier conflict, he relates scenes and actions worthy of Waverley's beloved Froissart and not unlike some that are witnessed by Scott's hero in the Highlands.
