The first book in James Fenimore Cooper’s Leatherstocking Tales, The Deerslayer is the exciting tale of the Deerslayer—known by name as Natty Bumppo—a young white man raised by a Delaware Indian tribe in the pre-revolutionary American colonies. Forced to kill for the first time in battle, Natty is tortured by his Huron captors and comes to oppose many of the customs and practices of his tribesmen.
The Deerslayer, though written after the first four books in the Leatherstocking Tales, takes place before the events of The Last of the Mohicans and is considered to be the first of the series. The Deerslayer has been adapted for film, radio, and television.

James Fenimore Cooper was a nineteenth-century American author and political critic. Esteemed by many for his Romantic style, Cooper became popular for his depiction of Native Americans in fiction. Before Cooper considered himself a writer, he was expelled from Yale University, served as a midshipman for the United States Navy, and became a gentleman farmer. Cooper wrote many notable works including The Pioneers, The Last of the Mohicans, and The Red Rover, which was adapted and performed on stage in 1828. Cooper passed away in 1851 at the age of 61.
