Overview

The Last of the Mohicans is a classic portrait of a man of moral courage who severs all connections with a society whose values he can no longer accept. Despite his chosen exile, the frontier scout Natty Bumppo, known as "Hawkeye," risks his life to escort two sisters through hostile Indian country. On this dangerous journey, he enlists the aid of the Mohican Chingachgook. And in the challenging ordeal that follows, in their encounters with deception, brutality, and the deaths of loved ones, the friendship between the two men deepens—the scout and the Indian, each with a singular philosophy of independence that has been nurtured and shaped by the silent, virgin forest.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“In his immortal friendship of Chingachgook and Natty Bumppo [Cooper] dreamed the nucleus of a new society….A stark human relationship of two men, deeper than the deeps of sex. Deeper than property, deeper than fatherhood, deeper than marriage, deeper than Love.” –D. H. Lawrence

The Last of the Mohicans raises again the question of the efficacy of human effort to control irrational forces at work in individual men, races, and nations. The question has never been more pertinent than now.” –James Franklin Beard
