  • ""Cooper?s first major success, The Spy is also his first book set in the period of the American War of Independence. The story starts in 1870, with the household of Mr. Wharton and his daughters visited by the three men: the mysterious Mr. Harper, an American loyalist; Captain Henry Wharton, the son of the house and an officer in the British Army; and Mr. Harvey Birch, suspected of being a British spy. The differing loyalties of these men are reflected in the differing loyalties of the household they visit, with the father trying to remain neutral, his daughter Sarah a supporter of the British and his other daughter Frances supporting the American rebels. The futures of these characters become inextricably linked as they face not only the perils of war, but also the sufferings of the human heart." -- from publisher's website."
  • "Inspired by accusations of venality leveled at the men who captured Major Andre (Benedict Arnold's co-conspirator, executed for espionage in 1780), Cooper's novel centers on Harry Birch, a common man wrongly suspected by well-born Patriots of being a spy for the British. Even George Washington, who supports Birch, misreads the man, and when Washington offers him payment for information vital to the Patriot's cause, Birch scorns the money and asserts that his action were motivated not by financial reward, but by his devotion to the fight for independence. A historical adventure tale reminiscent of Sir Walter Scott's Waverley novels, The Spy is also a parable of the American experience, a reminder that the nation's survival, like its Revolution, depends on judging people by their actions, not their class or reputations."@en

  • "During the War of Independence, there were many Americans who fought on the British side. It was a perilous time, with spies slipping in and out of the American lines with military information."
  • "Tells the story of a man who risked his life in service to America during the Revolutionary War."
  • "Cooper's first major success, The Spy is also his first book set in the period of the American War of Independence. The story starts in 1870 in the area of the country which was between British-held New York and the Continental Army in the Hudson River Valley and upstate New York."
  • "Cooper's first major success, The Spy, is also his first book set in the period of the American War of Independence. The story starts in 1870 in the area of the country, which was between Britishheld New York and the Constitutional Army in the Hudson River Valley and upstate New York. The household of mr Wharton and his daughters is visited by the three main protagonists of the story: the mysterious Mr Harper, an American loyalist; Captain Henry Wharton, the son of the hosue and an officer in the British Army; and Mr Harvey Birch, suspected of being a British spy."
  • "Looking for a stiff dose of seat-of-your-pants wartime action and adventure? Check out The Spy from American literary master James Fenimore Cooper. This extensively researched tale of the Revolutionary War focuses on the exploits of protagonist Harry Birch, who is passionately devoted to the cause of American independence but nonetheless finds himself falsely accused of treason."
  • "The plot of this book is based on a real spy story. Therefore, although some do consider it unbelievable, the basis of it is entirely true. The way that the author slowly brings out the character of Harvey Birch is wonderful. He creates numerous sub plots that make the story very interesting. THE SPY is very simply an intriguing story, which brings us to one of the two reasons that I thoroughly enjoy it: The story line of the book is as interesting as that of any modern spy novel, probably better in fact. Take this mysterious peddler, Harvey Birch. He is widely believed to be a spy for the British, but where do his loyalties truly lie? What real identity underlies Harper, the stranger driven to the Whartons' home by the storm? Beyond the mysteries lie other fascinating plot threads, for even in the midst of war love exists, both true as in the case of Major Dunwoodie and false as in the person of the British Colonel Wellmere."@en
  • "Written in 1821, "The Spy" takes place during the heart of the American Revolution in 1780 on the neutral grounds of Westchester County, New York. The protagonist, Harvey Birch, is an American spy wrongly suspected by Patriots to be a spy for the British. Harvey helps a family who is torn apart by the war, while he himself has to avoid both the Continental Army and American guerrillas. The book incorporates several real characters, including George Washington, who offers Harvey a reward at the end of the war."
