There is very little action in these chapters as Deerslayer continues to control the dialogue and mood  by further explanations of his philosophy and code. The tone is completely didactic, and all the  participants are submissive to Deerslayer's moral superiority. For example, the hero elaborates on  the differences between "natur' " and "gifts": The former is the basic human personality, composed of  individual feelings and ideas, which is never greatly altered; and the latter refers to the influence of  "sarcumstances" upon the person. Deerslayer also strives to define his religious beliefs: Indians and  white men, compatible and friendly on earth though separated by such barriers as marriage, may  possibly hope for reunion after death in the Christian heaven; people cannot judge the fate of others,  such as Tom Hutter, and rewards or punishments are meted out justly by God.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
