The Last of the Mohicans: A Narrative of 1757 (published 1826) is a historical novel by James Fenimore Cooper. It is the second book of the Leatherstocking Tales pentalogy and the best known to contemporary audiences. The Pathfinder, published 14 years later in 1840, is its sequel. The Last of the Mohicans is set in 1757, during the French and Indian War (the Seven Years' War), when France and Great Britain battled for control of North America. During this war, both the French and the British used Native American allies, but the French were particularly dependent, as they were outnumbered in the Northeast frontier areas by the more numerous British colonists. The novel is primarily set in the upper New York wilderness, detailing the transport of the two daughters of Colonel Munro, Alice and Cora, to a safe destination at Fort William Henry. Among the caravan guarding the women are the frontiersman Natty Bumppo, the Major Duncan Heyward, and the Indians Chingachgook and Uncas, the former of whom is the novel's title character. The novel has consistently been one of the "most popular novels in English" since its publication and it remains widely read in American literature courses. It has been adapted numerous times and in different languages for films, TV movies and cartoons.

About the Author:

James Fenimore Cooper (1789–1851) was a prolific and popular American writer of the early 19th century. His historical romances of frontier and Indian life in the early American days created a unique form of American literature. Before embarking on his career as a writer he served in the U.S. Navy as a Midshipman, which greatly influenced many of his novels and other writings. His most famous works are the five novels of the Leastherstocking Tales pentalogy (The Deerslayer, The Pioneers, The Pathfinder and The Prairie) with the romantic novel The Last of the Mohicans often regarded as his masterpiece.
