Testimony to the American frontier mythos, the fast-disappearance of Native nations on the east coast and the French and Indian War, this classic has long been viewed as a defining American work of literature. Attempting to bring the Munroe sisters to freedom, Hawkeye, Chingachgook and Uncas have woven themselves into the fabric of American Literature, presenting a timeless trio of friendship and loyalty against the backdrop of frontier warfare and strife. 288 pages, softcover.
