Cooper, James Fenimore:The Last of the Mohicans. v1, 29 Dec 2007

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:


The Last of the Mohicans is an epic novel by James Fenimore Cooper, first published in January 1826.

It was one of the most popular English-language novels of its time, and helped establish Cooper as one of the first world-famous American writers. Its narrative flaws were criticized from the start, and its length and elaborately formal prose style have reduced its appeal to later readers. But The Last of the Mohicans remains on the syllabi of most American literature courses. It is the best known of the Leatherstocking Tales, and Cooper wrote his novel The Prairie as a sequel to it.

The story takes place in 1757 during the French and Indian War, when France and Great Britain battled for control of the American and Canadian colonies. During this war, the French often allied themselves with Native American tribes in order to gain an advantage over the British, with unpredictable and often tragic results.

Note: The Gutenberg source had notes that were annotated by asterisks interspersed within the text. To increase the readability and the flow of this work I created linkable footnotes instead.

I've read that Cooper also created the stereotypical character of the American cowboy in his Leatherstocking novels. I'd been planning to read them to see for myself. Thank you for your efforts!

I think personally that this is one of the most tedious books ever written; I really struggled to get through it. I'd be interested to hear your views on it once you've read it.
