The best work of his mature years is a romantic trilogy, Satanstoe (1845), The Chainbearer (1845), and The Redskins (1846), in which he traces and defends the volution of an American landed aristocracy through four generations. Among the sea novels of these years are The Two Admirals (1842), Afloat and Ashore (1844), and The Sea Lions (1849). Wyandotte (1843) and The Oak Openings (1848) were attempts to use the American backwoods in stories outside the frame of “The Leather-Stocking Tales.” The Crater (1847) is his most thoughtful allegory of social and political criticism.
