The Last of the Mohicans Leatherstocking Tales (Series) Book 2 James Fenimore Cooper Author Richard Slotkin Author of introduction, etc. ().

The Leather-stocking Tales; Volume 2. Book. Seller Inventory # BBS More information about this seller | Contact this seller The Leather-Stocking Tales: the Prairie (Paperback) Published by Hard Press, United States () ISBN ISBN Softcover. New. A quick word of advice here. I enjoy books from the 18th & 19th centuries and they account for at least 1/2 of my books. Last Of The Mohicans was the most difficult book I have ever read. The prose was stilted, the vocabulary was obscure and the entire writing style was hard to grasp.

The five novels in The Leatherstocking Tales (collected in two Library of America volumes), Cooper's great saga of the American wilderness, form a pageant of the American frontier. Cooper's hero, Natty Bumppo, is forced ever farther into the heart of the continent by the advance of civilization that he inadvertently serves as advance scout, missionary, and critic. Set in during the French and Indian Wars, The Deerslayer testifies to the murderous humanity and natural beauty on which the history of America was written. In the climactic novel of the Leather-stocking Tales, Hawkeye, the noble white youth, learns to sacrifice self-interest for the common good and discovers his identity in bloody struggles among the powerful Iroquois confederacy.
