The story takes place in 1757 during the French and Indian War, when France and the Kingdom of 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. The feeling for nature and the excitement of the action are remarkable, no less so than Cooper's nostalgic view of the Indians and trappers who formed what he clearly thought of as a wilderness elite.

Riveting story..a bit wordy...but before radio, tv, the Internet etc. that was the norm. Nevertheless, very enthralling story. Well read, too.
