And yes, the number of times the n-word is used is painfully high. Cooper was a lifelong member of the Episcopal Church and contributed generously to it. Miles was one of those boys, and later, became one of those men.
As this is one of Cooper's later books, it's interesting to see the frustrations with American society seep into his writing. Describing the important contributions of sailors to the resistance movement against Great Britain and their experiences during the Revolutionary War, Gilje demonstrates that, while sailors recognized the ideals of the Revolution, their idea of liberty was far more individual in nature—often or through hard drinking and womanizing or joining a ship of their Afloat and ashore.
This sensational tale from action-adventure master James Fenimore Cooper takes the form of the life story of a rugged old sailor, Miles Wallingford. But, being a boy, he may not have had the consciousness to detail what orchestrated his decision, but we have a few clues.

CHRIMP is the Navy's fundamental tool for life-cycle control and management Afloat and ashore HAZMAT, both ashore and afloat. Written late in his life, Cooper uses Wallingford, as his mouthpiece for his own personal complaints about New York society, and the irreligiousness of the New Republic.
As for his lifelong friend Rupert, things change, or did adulthood just expose what was already there? It is a long book, but it doesn't drag at all.
