James Fenimore Cooper was a prolific and popular American writer of the first half of the 19th century.His historical romances of frontier and Indian life in the early American days created a unique form of American literature.The Oak Openings; or, The Bee Hunter focuses on the activities of professional honey-hunter Benjamin Boden, nicknamed "Ben Buzz". The novel is set in Kalamazoo, Michigan's Oak Opening, a wooded prairie during the War of 1812.
In 1823, Cooper began writing The Pilot, which he saw as a sea novel that seamen would appreciate for its fidelity and yet one that landsmen could understand. The hero of The Pilot: A Tale of the Sea - modeled on John Paul Jones - leads the American Navy in dangerous raids on the English coast. James Fenimore Cooper's fourth novelhelped start the genre of sea novels.
