  • The Last Of The Mohicans (Knickerbocker Classics)

    James Fenimore Cooper’s classic novel The Last of the Mohicans is set in the British province of New York during the French and Indian War of 1754-1763.

    Far and away the most popular volume of Cooper’s Leatherstocking Tales pentalogy, this is the thrilling account of a bloody ambush of 500 to 1,500 Anglo-American troops who had honorably surrendered at Fort William Henry. The story shows the ensuing kidnapping of Colonel Munro’s two daughters, as well as their daring rescue by frontiersman Natty Bumppo, British soldier Duncan Heyward, and the last two members of the Mohican tribe.

    Exhilarating and horrifying, this vivid portrayal of life and death on the American frontier is now available as an elegantly designed clothbound edition with an elastic closure and a new introduction.
