Last of the Mohicans
Great book. It is greater than the movie I saw. I love these kinds of books.

I had not read "The Last of the Mohicans" since I was about ten years of age, many, many, many years ago. I had forgotten it's sing song quality in tone. How very beautiful. I recommend this book to anyone, especially a person interested in the early American traditions of white and red races. It reads as a novel and yet as a history book. I was enthralled anew.
Nothing like the movie
If you think this is the worst book ever written, perhaps you shouldn't have dared to stray so far from your Tom Clancy/Danielle Steele little world into the land of early American literature. Though the writing here is extremely flowery even for its time period, the story itself is quite exciting. For those who liked the movie, this has almost nothing in common with it. There's little romance and lots of action.
As one who grew up in this area of Glens Falls (note the spelling), Fort Edward, Fort William Henry and Lake George, it brought many images clear to my mind. I had always wanted to read this book, and this e-book gave me the easiest opportunity to do so!
BTW: The cave mentioned at Glens Falls is now called "Cooper's Cave" - in honor of the author!
By I Know A Good Book
I know a good book when I read one, and this certainly isn't one. Possibly the worst book ever written. If you're looking for a book to read for pleasure, look somewhere else
The Last of the Mohicans
The movie with Daniel Day Lewis was great, but the original story is even better. Cooper is great in his depictions of Colonial America, the locales and intrepid woodsmen!!
James Fenimore Cooper One of the earliest works of great American literature,The Last of the Mohicans is a thrilling adventure of historical fiction. Set during the French and Indian War (more widely known as the Seven Years' War), the novel continues the story of Natty "Hawkeye" Bumppo (first introduced in Cooper's earlier novel The Pioneers) born of white settlers but raised by Native Americans. The adventure begins when Hawkeye, along with his friends and partners Chingachgook and Uncas, rescues the daughters of a British colonel from the villainous Magua. Soon the three frontiersman are tangled up in conflicting alliances and escalating violence, trying to protect their own lives and the lives of innocents.
James Fenimore Cooper On his first "warpath" in New York's Lake Otsego during the French and Indian Wars, the courageous Natty Bumppo--one of American literature's noblest heroes--is honor-bound to rescue a trapper and his family attacked by Iroquois Indians. Accompanied by his loyal Mohican friend, Chingachgook, the great frontiersman becomes embroiled in a bloody battle of capture and escape.
James Fenimore Cooper On taking an eager and hasty survey of the valley from the windows of their room, nothing, however, but its usual serenity was to be seen. It was glittering with the opening brilliancy of one of those lovely, mild days, which occur about the time of the falling of the leaf; and which, by their frequency, class the American autumn with the most delightful seasons of other countries. We have no spring; vegetation seems to leap into existence, instead of creeping, as in the same latitudes of the Old World; but how gracefully it retires! September, October, even November and December, compose the season for enjoyment in the open air; they have their storms, but they are distinct, and not of long continuance, leaving a clear atmosphere and a cloudless sky.

James Fenimore Cooper The increase of the towns of Manhattan, as, for the sake of convenience, we shall term New York and her adjuncts, in all that contributes to the importance of a great commercial mart, renders them one of the most remarkable places of the present age. Within the distinct recollections of living men, they have grown from a city of the fifth or sixth class to be near the head of all the purely trading places of the known world. That there are sufficient causes for this unparalleled prosperity, will appear in the analysis of the natural advantages of the port, in its position, security, accessories, and scale.

The Last of the Mohicans: A Narrative of 1757 is a historical novel by James Fenimore Cooper, first published in February 1826. It is the second book of the Leatherstocking Tales pentalogy and the best known. The Pathfinder, published 14 years later in 1840, is its sequel. The story takes place in 1757, during the French and Indian War (the Seven Years' War), when France and Great Britain battled for control of the North American colonies. During this war, the French called on allied Native American tribes to fight against the more numerous British colonists.
The novel was one of the most popular in English in its time, although critics identified narrative flaws. Its length and formal prose style have limited its appeal to later readers, yet The Last of the Mohicans remains widely read in American literature courses. (Wikipedia)
