Publisher's Summary

The setting for this historical romance is the French and Indian War, a war which pitted England and its American colonists against the French and their Indian allies. Cora and Alice Munro, the daughters of an English commander, are on their way to join their father. Escorting them through the wilderness are Alice's fiancé, Major Duncan Heyward, and the treacherous Indian Magua, who secretly serves the French.

Magua's plan to betray the party to the Iroquois is foiled by the scout Hawkeye and his companions, old chief Chingachgook and his son Uncas, the "last of the Mohicans." Through a series of fights and rescues, this trio of loyal friends, who embody a code of manly honor and heroics, defend the virtuous sisters from Magua and his Iroquois thugs.

This timeless tale will enchant readers with its panoramic view of America at its conception.

    "The movie is better"

    This is a good story but somewhat unbelievable. Who in their right minds would try to usher two young girls through hostile territory, through lands rife with hostile Indians, their father's sworn enemies and not insignificantly, hostile terrain and expect to keep them safe just so they could see their father? And this in the 18th century? I mean, I know they missed him but the risk to their lives seems to make this journey counterintuitive. But on the other hand, the characters were so interesting and their relationships so socially important for the times that it compensated for a lot of my misgivings. I learned a lot from them.

    It didn't end the way I wanted it to, of course (who doesn't love a happy ending?), but it was the only way it could end and be reasonably believable.

    The biggest problem I had with it though was the fact that it is extremely difficult to read. The language Cooper uses is somewhat archaic and extremely wordy which makes it hard to follow. If I were determined to love this book, I would read it slowly and savor every sentence. I think that is the only way to really "get it".

    All in all I'm glad I slogged through it but I will definitely not read it again. Side note: this is one of those rare stories for which the movie is better than the book.

    A word about the narrator. He has a great voice and a pleasing way of reading. His characterizations lacked a bit to be desired though. Some were pretty good, but others were just sort of non-existent. I would love to hear him read non fiction.

    "Just great!"

    One of the greatest novels of all time, and along with Tarzan Of The Apes, Treasure Island, The Three Musketeers, Gulliver's Travels and Call Of The Wild, one of the great adventure stories!

    "Dull narration"

    Loved the movie, think I liked the book when I read it 30 years ago, however, this was very boring narration, I recommend you look at other versions of this book.
