The Last of the Mohicans
“Every trail has its end... every calamity brings its lesson!”
Considered the first major American novelist, James Fenimore Cooper is renowned for his historical romance novels. Among his oeuvre, he is best known for the Leatherstocking Tales, a pentalogy of novels written between 1823 and 1841 of which The Last of the Mohicans is the second book.
On their way through the wilderness, Major Duncan Heyward and his three companions are led astray and deceived by Magua, a native. Led right into the hands of the French, the British are helped by Hawkeye and his friends, the last of the Mohicans. Together, they encounter brutality, bloodshed, and courage and finally emerge victorious.
Set in 1757 during the French and Indian War, The Last of the Mohicans is an entwined tale of love between races and colonization, making it Cooper’s masterpiece.
