Set on the Great Plains during the time of the Lewis and Clark Expedition to the Pacific coast, The Prairie is the third of James Fenimore Cooper’s novels to feature Natty Bumppo, the famous Hawkeye. Now in his eighties, Bumppo has left New York for the untouched expanses of the frontier. There he encounters the wagon train of Ishmael Bush and his family. Bush is very soon in trouble with the Teton Sioux (Lakota), and Bumppo endeavours to help.
As the last of the author’s Leatherstocking Tales, the novel finds the hero of The Last of the Mohicans at the end of life, seeking to evade civilization as it creeps toward his beloved, and vast, wilderness. Nostalgic in tone, The Prairie is an examination of the great migration that took place following the Louisiana Purchase and the opening of the American west.

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.
