Description
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.
Originally published in 1841, "The Deerslayer" is one of James Fenimore Cooper's legendary "Leatherstocking Tales"--heart-pounding narratives of adventure in the vast wilderness and desolate prairies of eighteenth-century America. Acclaimed by D. H. Lawrence as "the loveliest and best" of Cooper's works, "The Deerslayer" recaptures the danger and excitement of frontier life in the New World.
