About the Author

James Fenimore Cooper (September 15, 1789 – September 14, 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. He lived most of his life in Cooperstown, New York, established by his father William. Cooper was a lifelong member of the Episcopal Church and in his later years contributed generously to it. He attended Yale University for three years but was expelled for misbehavior. 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. He is best remembered as a novelist who wrote numerous sea-stories and the historical novels known as the Leatherstocking Tales. Among naval historians his works on early U.S. naval history have been widely received but were sometimes criticized by Cooper's contemporaries. Among his most famous works is the Romantic novel The Last of the Mohicans, often regarded as his masterpiece.

My favorite of the series, when I read this it moved me greatly.One has to be in the proper mood to enjoy these books. A bit of romance, a bit of adventure, quite a bit of moralizing. I enjoyed them when I read them, but have no desire to read them again. I've since read enough history to realize just how fictional these are. If you read them for the adventure and the descriptions of the Northeastern woodlands, I don't think you will be disappointed. Sadly, the plot of each has sort of blended together and I can't remember the details of any.

Ok it's either someone was having way too much fun with this review thing or they actually wrote a suicide letter on a book review. If that's the case then they really are stupid. Suicide is never the answer! The deffinition of suicide is a permenit solution for a temporary problem. My advice is don't ever try to commit suicide, unless you wanna go to Hell. By the way if you have ever seen M*A*S*H 4077 the tv show about the Korian war then you would know that the main character gets his nick-name from this book HAWKEYE is the name and he's a surgine the other most memberable character is RADAR but he's not really important. This has nothing to do with the book just so you know. Remember my advice and take it to heart NO SUICIDE.

I'm embarrassed to admit I didn't check if it was simplified first. This probably would be great for kids but I lost my paperback copy and having names like le subtil translated to sly fox in this version seems hokey.

1000 pages of adventure that leaves you engrossed with the characters and "living" in the forests of Northern New York. I became attached to one of the characters and was sad to have the book end and to say good bye to her and her rescuers. The cost of the book was negible and kept me entertained for a month.
