Hiding under a fallen tree until the pursuing warriors have run past him, Deerslayer then heads  directly for the lake and the canoe. Luck turns against him because some Mingos see him.  Deerslayer reaches the canoe, but he discovers that the paddles have been removed by the  savages. Nevertheless, he jumps into the canoe after giving it a vigorous push. He trusts to the wind  and the current to take him out of range because the Mingos, firing at him, compel Deerslayer to  remain under cover. Unable to see because of his concealment, Deerslayer thinks that the canoe is  moving away from land.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
