Susan Augusta Fenimore Cooper (April 17, 1813 - December 31, 1894) was a noted author. Her most famous work is Rural Hours, a nature diary of Cooperstown; she also wrote Elinor Wyllys, a novel. She was the daughter of established American novelist James Fenimore Cooper.
Written as a private memoir for her nieces and nephews, who had never known James FenimoreCooper, this evocative account is a prime source for the private life of James FenimoreCooper between from 1816-1828, as well as of his daughter.
SFC's uses of history and natural history both differ from those of her father, and revise the dominant myths of 19th century America.
SFC's 1859 money-raising appeal celebrates Mount Vernon as central to Washington's life, not a retreat from public affairs, thus domesticating patriotism and history.
