Description

A gorgeously crafted edition of a great American classic—James Fenimore Cooper’s epic tale of frontier life during the French and Indian War, complete with lush tip-in illustrations.

Chingachgook and Uncas are the last living members of the great Mohican tribe. Hawkeye, a colonial scout, is their companion and loyal friend. In the midst of the French and Indian War, these three will risk everything to lead the two daughters of a British colonel to safety through the battle-torn northern wilderness. When the girls are captured by the vicious Huron tribe, Chingachgook, Uncas, and Hawkeye determine to do whatever they can to save them—no matter the cost.

This keepsake edition of James Fenimore Cooper’s acclaimed novel showcases magnificent illustrations by N.C. Wyeth.
