Description

It's 1757. The fate of North America is in the hands of the French, the British, and the Native Americans. Each party weaves its warlike path in this tapestry of adventure. Meet Hawkeye, Uncas, and Chingatchgook - each a stealthy iron-browed warrior of the mystifying forest. Discover the unscrupulous and sinister Magua, banished and determined to become the leader of his people.

Originally published in 1826, The Last of the Mohicans is the second historical novel in the Leatherstocking Tales pentalogy and is best known to contemporary audiences. Since its publication, it has remained one of the most popular novels in English and is widely read in American literature courses today.

Mohicans & More

This book is enjoyable from an historical perspective.Considered one of James Fenimore Cooper's best,written in the 1800s, the language is a bit flowery at times but the story flows and the characters are real. Google James Fenimore Cooper for a glimpse into Cooper's prolific works,life and influence on American literary culture,politics and life. A true American of his generation , Cooper had first hand experience with the frontier[particulerly New York State] , the sea ,England,Europe and wrote about those experiences extensively in both fiction and non-fiction.
I do caution you that you will be reading the way novels were written "back then" . But in that period this would have been on the New York Times Best Seller list [had they had such a list] for a Very long time and was read widely and Eagerly all over Europe and Russia..
The EXCELLENT movie with Daniel Day Lewis is only helpful because it captures the Spirit of the book and aids in visualizing the characters. Putting it another way,you don't have to worry about knowing what happens because the movie and the book plots mirror each other only in the slightest.
The narrator does a very good job.
