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.



About the Author
James Fenimore Cooper was a nineteenth-century American author and political critic. Esteemed by many for his Romantic style, Cooper became popular for his depiction of Native Americans in fiction. Before Cooper considered himself a writer, he was expelled from Yale University, served as a midshipman for the United States Navy, and became a gentleman farmer. Cooper wrote many notable works including The Pioneers, The Last of the Mohicans, and The Red Rover, which was adapted and performed on stage in 1828. Cooper passed away in 1851 at the age of 61.
