Ask Fenimore

We welcome questions — simple as well as advanced, from beginners as well as long-time Cooper fans, from students and general readers as well as scholars — about any aspect of James Fenimore Cooper or Susan Fenimore Cooper.

Just email Ask Fenimore, and we will try to answer them as quickly as possible. No question is too minor, and we have a large library of Cooper reference materials to help with more complex inquires. Besides questions relating to Cooper’s life and works, we will try to help with questions about Cooper genealogy, or about the origin or value of copies of Cooper’s books that you may own.
