The Last of the Mohicans
Angered by the values of his materialistic society, Hawkeye (Natty Bumppo) lives apart from other white men, sharing the solitude and sublimity of the wilderness with his Mohican Indian friend, Chingachgook. But the savageries of the French and Indian War force them out of exile, and they agree to guide two sisters in search of their father through hostile Indian country.
Tragic, fast-pased, and stocked with elements of a classic frontier adventure--massacres and raids, innocent settlers, hardened soldiers, renegade Indians, and a doomed love affair.

James Fenimore Cooper's Last of the Mohicans was a defining contribution to the American frontier mythos, perpetuating the idea that Native nations on the east coast had disappeared. In their quest to bring the Munroe sisters to freedom, Hawkeye, Chingachgook and Uncas have woven themselves into the fabric of American Literature.
