Homeward Bound. Or, The Chase. A Tale of the Sea (1838) marks Cooper's transition into a remarkable creative phase that produced not just the "sequel" to this novel, Home as Found , but also The Deerslayer, The Littlepage Manuscripts , and The Crater . Set in the 1830s when Cooper himself had returned to the United States, Homeward Bound tells the story of a small group of passengers at sea, including the modern-day Effinghams--the descendants of the protagonists of The Pioneers . Cooper provides the requisite romance and excitement (a shipwreck and battle with Arabs), but his real concern is personal: What has happened to the U.S. during the years of the Jackson Administration, when he (like the Effinghams) was in Europe? What does the future hold when a democratic public listens to the demagogues of the press more than its own conscience or laws? Though long overshadowed by Home as Found , which provoked an outcry from Cooper's political enemies, Homeward Bound is a still-timely meditation on the relationship between authority and individual desire, the idea of the United States as a diverse political and cultural entity, and the emergent power of the press to fashion "truth" for its readers. As with all other AMS-published editions of The Writings of James Fenimore Cooper, Homeward Bound will be edited to meet the exacting standards of the MLA's Committee on Scholarly Editions.
