IMLAY fled from KY to escape indebtedness; in Paris published A TOPOGRAPHICAL DESCRIPTION OF THE WESTERN TERRITORY OF NORTH AMERICA (London, 1792) that plagarized Filson. With his lover Mary Wollstonecraft worte THE EMIGRANTS (1794), based on Filson's narrative of DB's life. Francois-Rene de Chateaubriand used Imlay's book as background for his own LES NATCHEZ (?), which probably did more than any other to disseminate the popular image of the noble savage and to prepare readers for Cooper's novels.

The PORT FOLIO review 15 (1823):231-32, praised THE PIONEERS for its "exact knowledge" of life in a frontier town. Cooper's audience was intensely interested in American reality, especially the reality of the frontier that they supposed he supplied to them. Richard Slotkin has labeled this "the evolution of a national hero."
