Against the breathtaking scenery of 18th century North America, Hawkeye delivers the adventure, beauty and hardship of frontier life!
In the new frontier, French and British forces battle for a stronghold in the Hudson Valley. Facing savage dangers and rugged terrain, Elizabeth Shields (LYNDA CARTER) and her husband William have come to Fort Bennington to open a trading post in support of the British force, leaving behind the comfort and security of the old world.
When their journey crosses paths with the hostile Iroquois, Elizabeth and William are rescued by Hawkeye (LEE HORSLEY), a nonconformist frontiersman and his native friend, Chingachgook (RODNEY A. GRANT).
William is double-crossed by his greedy brother who orchestrates his capture by the French. Elizabeth turns to Hawkeye for assistance in rescuing her husband while learning to survive her new frontier life. As her feelings for Hawkeye develop into more than friendship, Elizabeth must pray for the well being of her husband, while holding vigil for the man she secretly loves.

The main character is Nathaniel Bumppo, who goes by the name Hawkeye, a woodsman whose parents were killed by Indians when he was 13. He was later raised by the Delaware Indians and by Scottish missionaries. His best friend is the chief of the Delaware Indians and is called Chingachgook. They do are like brothers and would die for each other.
The story starts out with a lady & her husband traveling to a British fort when they are confronted by Indians from a nearby warring tribe known as the Iroquois. Just before the action starts, Chingachgook fires at one of the Indians and Hawkeye at the other, but the husband things his shot actually hit an Indian. Later at the fort we learn that the husband and wife are going to be running a trading post at the fort and that the husband’s younger brother is a Captain at the fort (2nd in command). The younger brother was supposed to deliver some trading contracts but it would appear that he wasn’t able to secure it. He spent his inheritance and his older brother bought him a commission (captain-ship) in the British Army. As the story progresses the older brother is visibly upset with the younger and the younger sets up the older brother to be taken away by the Indians and/or delivered to the French. We don’t hear much about the older brother after this until the last episode.
In the meantime the wife takes it upon herself to run the fort and Nathanial takes an interest in her. It should be noted that Nathanial is a straight arrow, living his life by the Good Book, something all of us should strive to do. You can’t help but like his character. At times he & Elizabeth appear to want to move forward in their relationship which is always on the up & up with Hawkeye always looking out for her and Chingachgook looking out for Nathaniel and vice versa.
I enjoyed watching all 22 episodes and wish there were more. The story lines were simple and people back then had the same basic needs we have today. In the last episode the husband returns and he can tell that something is amiss. We learn that the Captain attempts to kill the brother and the brother later stabs the captain and takes his wife away from the fort. We find out that he is somewhat mad and drifts in and out of sanity. At the end he offers his wife up to God in much the same way that Abraham offered Isaac to God. Hawkeye stops him and a fight ensues and when it looks like Hawkeye will meet his maker, the wife, Elizabeth shoots her husband. The season ends with both Hawkeye and Elizabeth making plans about their future. I like to think if there was a second season that we’d see Elizabeth with child. What I’d really like to see if at all possible is a Hawkeye movie but that’s wishful thinking on my part.
This was a beautifully told series and I thoroughly enjoyed every episode and wished there were more. This is one that I will probably watch over & over again in the future. It’s that good.
The spectacular scenery of British Columbia, the mountains, streams, lakes and forests is one of the stars of the show. Lynda Carter’s heaving bosom in her low cut dresses is another. And Lee Horsley, and Rodney Grant from Dances With Wolves (1990), as well as a great cast of guest and supporting actors.
Some of the episodes don’t make a lot of sense. Some episodes have a colonel in charge of the fort with a lot of soldiers; other episodes have a captain in charge of the fort with only a handful of soldiers. I couldn’t figure out what was going on with that.
