While abroad, he wrote Notions of the Americans (1828), historical novels on European themes like The Bravo (1831), and further tales of Native Americans and the sea. By this time he had an international reputation, but disillusionment at the reception of his ideas at home produced a petulant tract, A Letter to His Countrymen (1834), in which he renounced the writing of fiction. These were followed with a political allegory, The Monikins (1838), and a primer of his views, The American Democrat (1838).
