Magua and the Hurons capture Heyward, Gamut, and the Munro sisters. Magua admits that he is seeking revenge against Cora's father, Colonel Munro, for turning him into an alcoholic with whiskey causing him to be temporarily cast out of the Hurons and then whipping him at a post for drunken behavior.

He offers to spare the party if Cora becomes his wife, but she refuses. Upon a second refusal, he sentences the prisoners to death.

Hawk-eye and the Mohicans rescue all four and lead them to a dilapidated building that was involved in a battle between the Huron and the British some years ago.

They are nearly attacked again, but the Hurons leave the area, rather than disturb the graves of their tribesmen. The next day, Hawk-eye leads the party to Fort Henry, past a siege by the French army.

Munro sends Hawk-eye to Fort Edward for reinforcements, but he is captured by the French, who delivers him to Fort Henry without the letter.

Heyward returns to Colonel Munro and announces his love for Alice, and Munro gives his permission for Heyward's courtship. The French general, Montcalm, invites Munro to a parley and shows him General Webb's letter, in which the British general has refused reinforcements.

At this, Munro agrees to Montcalm's terms: that the British soldiers, together with their women and children, must leave the fort and withdraw from the war for eighteen months.

Outside the fort, the column of British evacuees is betrayed and ambushed by 2, Huron warriors; in the ensuing massacre , Magua kidnaps Cora and Alice, and he leads them toward the Huron village, with David Gamut in pursuit.

Hawk-eye, the Mohicans, Heyward, and Colonel Munro survive the massacre and set out to follow Magua, and cross a lake to intercept his trail.

They encounter a band of Hurons by the lakeshore, who spot the travelers. A canoe chase ensues, in which the rescuers reach land before the Hurons can kill them, and eventually follow Magua to the Huron village.

Here, they find Gamut earlier spared by the Hurons as a harmless madman , who says that Alice is held in this village and Cora in one belonging to the Lenape Delaware.

Uncas is taken prisoner by the Hurons and left to starve when he withstands torture, and Heyward fails to find Alice. A Huron warrior asks Heyward to heal his lunatic wife, and both are stalked by Hawk-eye in the guise of a bear.

They enter a cave where the madwoman is kept, and the warrior leaves. Soon after the revelation of his identity to Heyward, Hawk-eye accompanies him, and they find Alice.

They are discovered by Magua, but Hawk-eye overpowers him, and they leave him tied to a wall. Thereafter Heyward escapes with Alice, while Hawk-eye remains to save Uncas.

Gamut convinces a Huron to allow him and his magical bear Hawk-eye in disguise to approach Uncas, and they untie him. Uncas dons the bear disguise, Hawk-eye wears Gamut's clothes, and Gamut stays in a corner mimicking Uncas.

Uncas and Hawk-eye escape by traveling to the Delaware village where Cora is being held, just as the Hurons that suspect something is amiss and find Magua tied up in the cave.

Magua tells his tribe the full story behind Heyward and Hawkeye's deceit before assuming leadership of the Hurons, who vow revenge. Magua enters the Delaware village and demands the return of his prisoners.

During the ensuing council meeting, Uncas is revealed to be a Mohican, a once-dominant tribe closely related to the Delawares.

Tamenund , the sage of the Delawares, sides with Uncas and frees the prisoners, except Cora, whom he awards to Magua according to tribal custom.

This makes a showdown between the Hurons and Delawares inevitable, but to satisfy laws of hospitality, Tamenund gives Magua a three-hour head start before pursuit.

While the Delawares are preparing for battle, David Gamut escapes and tells his companions that Magua has positioned his men in the woods between the Huron and Delaware villages.

Undeterred, Uncas, Hawkeye, and the Delawares march into the woods to fight the Hurons. The Delawares vanquish the Hurons in a bloody battle and ultimately capture the Huron village, but Magua escapes with Cora and two other Hurons; Uncas, Hawk-eye, and Heyward pursue them up to a high mountain.

In a fight at the edge of a cliff, Cora, Uncas, and Magua are killed. The novel concludes with a lengthy account of the funerals of Uncas and Cora, and Hawk-eye reaffirms his friendship with Chingachgook.

Tamenund prophesies: "The pale-faces are masters of the earth, and the time of the red-men has not yet come again According to Susan Fenimore Cooper , the author's eldest daughter, Cooper first conceived the idea for the book while visiting the Adirondack Mountains in with a party of English gentlemen.

They passed on to Lake George and Glens Falls. Impressed with the caves behind the falls, one member of the party suggested that "here was the very scene for a romance.

Cooper promised Stanley "that a book should be written, in which these caves should have a place; the idea of a romance essentially Indian in character then first suggesting itself to his mind.

Cooper began work on the novel immediately. He and his family stayed for the summer in a cottage belonging to a friend, situated on the Long Island shore of the Sound, opposite Blackwell's Island, not far from Hallett's Cove the area is now part of Astoria.

He wrote quickly and completed the novel in the space of three or four months. He suffered a serious illness thought to have been brought on by sunstroke [18] and, at one point, he dictated the outline of the fight between Magua and Chingachgook 12th chapter , to his wife, who thought that he was delirious.

In the novel, Hawkeye refers to Lake George as the Horican. Sacrement , was "too complicated". Horican he found on an old map of the area; it was a French transliteration of a native group who had once lived in the area.

Cooper grew up in Cooperstown, New York , the frontier town founded by his father. His daughter said that as a young man he had few opportunities to meet and talk with Native Americans: "occasionally some small party of the Oneidas , or other representatives of the Five Nations , had crossed his path in the valley of the Susquehanna River , or on the shores of Lake Ontario , where he served when a midshipman in the navy.

By using the name Uncas for one of his characters, he seemed to confuse the two regional tribes: the Mohegan of Connecticut, of which Uncas had been a well-known sachem , and the Mahican of upstate New York.

The popularity of Cooper's book helped spread the confusion. In the period when Cooper was writing, deputations from the Western tribes frequently traveled through the region along the Mohawk River, on their way to New York or Washington, D.

He made a point of visiting these parties as they passed through Albany and New York. On several occasions, he followed them to Washington to observe them for longer.

He also talked to the military officers and interpreters who accompanied them. According to Susan Cooper, its success was "greater than that of any previous book from the same pen" and "in Europe, the book produced quite a startling effect.

Over time the book grew to be regarded by some as the first Great American Novel. Cooper's novels were popular in their day, but contemporary and subsequent 19th-century reviewers were often critical, or dismissive.

For example, the reviewer of the London Magazine May described the novel as "clearly by much the worst of Mr. Cooper's performances.

Twain complained that Cooper lacked a variety of styles and was overly wordy. In the early s Twain scholar Bernard DeVoto found that there was more to the essay, and pieced together a second one from the extra writing, titled "Fenimore Cooper's Further Literary Offenses," in which Twain re-writes a small section of The Last of the Mohicans , claiming that Cooper, "the generous spendthrift", used "extra and unnecessary words" in the original version.

Re-reading the book in his later years, Cooper noted some inconsistencies of plot and characterization, particularly the character of Munro.

But, he wrote that in general, "the book must needs have some interest for the reader since it could amuse even the writer, who had in a great measure forgotten the details of his work.

It has influenced popular opinion about American Indians and the frontier period of eastern American history. The romanticized images of the strong, fearless, and ever-resourceful frontiersman i.

A number of films have been based on the lengthy book, making various cuts, compressions, and changes. The American adaptations include:.

The film has been deemed "culturally significant" by the Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry.

According to the director Michael Mann , his version was based more on the film version. Mann believes Cooper's novel is "not a very good book", taking issue with Cooper's sympathy for the Euro-Americans and their seizure of the American Indians' domain.

Alva Henderson 's operatic version premiered in Wilmington, Delaware in In , Lake George Opera presented the same work. Classic Comics 4, The Last of the Mohicans , first published Marvel Comics has published two versions of the story: in a one-issue version as part of their Marvel Classics Comics series issue In , they published a six-issue mini-series to start the new Marvel Illustrated series.

Famed manga artist Shigeru Sugiura wrote and illustrated a very loose manga adaptation of the story in remade in This adaptation is heavily influenced by American movies and western comics and is filled with absurd humor and anachronistic jokes.

Alternate Versions The Director's Definitive cut placed back mostly everything from the Theatrical release leaving some of the things from the Director's Expanded Edition still intact.

The following scene in which the soldiers tell the people to join the fight, it shows the major sitting on his horse. It leaves almost no time difference.

When the Mohawk's chief talks, the TC shows Jack from a side-wise shot. Both cuts have a different beginning of the scene.

The DDC begins with a different shot that is focused on Jack while he's talking. Duncan enters in the background and tells the soldier what to do.

Then, there's the extension that can also be found in the old DC. Still, some words seem to be added at the end of some of the lines: Settler: "Any of the boys worth havin' can disappear in the forest..

He stated: "Their Latinate voluptuousness combines with their Gallic laziness and the result is [they'd rather eat and make love with their faces than fight.

A shot of Hawkeye looking angrily at Duncan and then starting to look more mild and almost mockingly was deleted.

In the DDC, he's seen grinning only. The camera pans along the battlefield a bit earlier. The side-wise shot of a gun being positioned is shorter.

In a scene where the French-Indian enemy in the trench. It's shorter. Unimportant shot of the English fortress from the outside. An Indian gets in position and there is also a further shot.

Hawkeye is seen in a different perspective when one guy tells him that he didn't expect them to show up in the fortress. While Hawkeye reports about the attacked village, it shows Col.

Munro while the theatrical cut shows Hawkeye. Montcalm's line: 'I will give you three oxen for a feast. The line "We're at one.

Join us. Hear what he has to tell us. As Cora tells Duncan that she's not very fond of him, it shows Duncan listening to her in a serious face.

Munro's march is longer. Magua turns his head before talking was shortened. The line "Col. Munro would. But General Webb will not honor their agreement and send their soldiers away.

The Huron Indian is seen earlier as he runs towards the British convoy and again a scene begins some frames earlier. Cora's first line behind the waterfall was inserted.

But she spoke half of her second line: "If the worst happens". The second half of her line: "and only one of us survives, something of the other does, too.

The song now plays over an extended sequence of shots and none of the lyrics are English. Previously in the Theatrical Cut the sequence was significantly shorter and the beginning of the song was sung in English.

A more distanced shot of the villagers going to the center of the village is seen earlier. As the Huron chief is guided to his seat, this shot was shown completely.

At the position, where the scene with the villagers has a later shot where only some people go slowly to the center of the village.

As Hawkeye talks to the chief, it shows the chief and it happens again, but the other way around this time. There is a change in position when the chief gives a speech.

The best part about the book is that there are entire sections in French. For once, lack of knowledge about a foreign language has paid off!

I was practically giddy with excitement when I encountered entire pages of French dialogue as it meant, mon Dieu!

What can one say about Cooper? His historical imagination is profound, his creative use of the gothic landscape is uniquely American, and his influence on plot and characterization in American fiction--including, I recently discovered, South American fiction--is pervasive and extensive.

Yet his diction is so often trite, his style so plodding and crabbed, his syntax so convoluted, that it is difficult to read more than a few pages of "The Last of the Mohicans" without throwing the book across th What can one say about Cooper?

Yet his diction is so often trite, his style so plodding and crabbed, his syntax so convoluted, that it is difficult to read more than a few pages of "The Last of the Mohicans" without throwing the book across the room in disgust.

That's a pity, for Cooper helped shape an early and influential interpretation of American history--later adopted by the narrative historian and formidable literary stylist Francis Parkman--that combines an elegiac appreciation for a disappearing wilderness, a wilderness which helped to shape and define the American character, with a critical examination of how that character in its turn formed the emerging democratic state.

He shows us how Protestant middle class English values are more suited to egalitarianism than the aristocrat instincts of the Catholic French, and embodies this egalitarianism and spirit of the wilderness in the character of the scout "Hawkeye.

He knows the secrets of the wilderness and appreciates Native Americans just as they are, acknowledging both their nobility and their savagery.

He also understands the British soldiers and settlers, but, although he can move effortlessly between the two worlds, he is never completely comfortable in either.

He lends his talents to others, but, remaining a solitary even in communion, he cuts his own path through the trees.

Quite a legacy indeed! If only his books weren't so badly written, his originality and vision would have earned him a place in the American pantheon right up there with Hawthorne and Poe.

Cooper published the work in so there is that florid, adjective laden prose that reads like a thesaurus smeared with molasses. But for its time I can see how it was viewed as a masterpiece and can definitely see how so much lite I was always a big fan of the Michael Mann film starring Daniel Day Lewis, and so I finally read the original.

But for its time I can see how it was viewed as a masterpiece and can definitely see how so much literature since has been influenced by this story.

Was Hawkeye the original American hero? Independent, resourceful, rugged and casually violent, he may have been the archetype for many literary characters and may have done much to influence American culture as well.

The book is also graphically violent, several scenes could have been lifted from a Cormack McCarthy novel, but Cooper was probably portraying an accurate depiction of a rough time.

If so, you might consider reading this first book in Cooper's "Leatherstocking Tales. His life would be be lived on the edge of civilization in the American frontier town of Cooperstown, New York, founded by his father.

I'm not going to say Have you ever wondered what life was like during the American frontier era of the early 's, before civilization encroached upon its wildness and beauty?

I'm not going to say that this book was easy reading, but with a little patience you will learn much of the unspoiled American frontier with Cooper's exact and fascinating descriptions of the flora and fauna.

Until the invention of a time machine, I will have to content myself with Cooper's detailed account of life in the primeval America frontier.

Cooper tells of the harmonious lifestyle of the Native Americans, living off the land and their respect for nature.

I've often wondered what life would be like living off the land in such a manner so I found reading this book a learning experience in that aspect as well.

Cooper's knowledge of the Native American lifestyle and its destruction with the advancement of civilization, is also related in this classic book.

Decimated by disease and intermingling with the white race removed their way of life forever. The noble Chingachgook and his beloved son Uncas, together with his adopted son Natty Bumppo, better known as Hawkeye, are the last pure blood natives of the Mohican nation.

They are making their way to Kentucky to find a wife for young Uncas. Their mission is interrupted by the French and Indian War which will irrevocably change their way of life forever.

As they discover a ravaged frontier settlement with all the inhabitants savagely murdered, they soon learn that their Huron enemies are responsible for this heinous attack.

They continue their journey cautiously and arrive just in time to save a regiment of English soldiers under attack from the Huron nation.

The Hurons under the leadership of Magua have allied themselves with the French army. The English regiment, lead by the tiresome Major Duncan Heywood, along with the Munro sisters, making their way to Fort William Henry and are the only survivors of the Huron assault.

They have no idea that Fort William Henry is under attack, as Hawkeye, Chingachgook and Uncas, attempt to safely deliver the Munro sisters to their father.

From this point onward, this threesome's intrepid attempts to save the Munro sisters from Magua and his Huron warriors will take your breath away.

The end of this sad tale has the ancient Chingachgook the only surviving member of the Mohican nation, which Cooper uses to illustrate the advancement and destruction by civilization upon the primeval American forest and the beauty that once existed.

The tragic Chingachgook will break your heart as he accepts the destruction of his family, tribe and way of life, as the last living member of the Mohican nation.

He patiently looks forward to the day when he will once again rejoin them in the afterlife. Could any fate be more heartrending? Cooper's classic Leatherstocking tales, consisting of 5 books, relate the adventures of Natty Bumppo, which would become popular in America as well as Europe.

Whether or not you are a fan of historical fiction, I wish you would give this book a chance at least. For those interested, I'm posting a link to the hypnotic soundtrack, which also has a cult following.

Very popular in its time, The Last of the Mohicans is a historical fiction written in the s and set in the s during the French and Indian War in which a small party of British colonists and their Indian guides journey through the upstate New York wilderness defending themselves from their French and Indian enemies.

James Fenimore Cooper brought insight into the lives of the Native Americans in a way seldom seen at a time when the people of these many new world tribes were mostly reviled as hostile savages.

Back when it was published The Last of the Mohicans must have seemed revolutionary. Were it tweaked into the non-fiction Cooper half seemed to be trying to write, perhaps it would've succeeded, if it's inaccuracies could've been shorn up, that is.

But it is a fiction and today its formulaic prose does not go down easily for the modern reader. Archaic terms and phrasings aside, Cooper wrote like a grammar robot.

He adheres to English language strictures like a foreigner. His rigid style absolutely takes the joy out of what should be an exciting tale. And why use one word when five are available?

Wordiness digs this poor book's grave ever deeper. The other big problem I had was Cooper's narrative style. Not only does he feel the need to explain away everything, he forces the explanation into the mouths of his characters at the most ridiculous of times.

Soldiers and scouts constantly chatter away while tracking enemies or hiding from them. By the end it got so unbelievable that I found myself having sarcastic conversations with the characters Yeah," I replied before pausing to ask, "How is it you've survived this long?

Cooper was a prolific writer with something like 40 novels to his credit, most written in the early 19th century. The Last of the Mohicans is his best known work and was popular in America as well as Europe.

It's a frontier adventure story with a hint of romance to it, but Cooper's portrayal of Indians and women in the novel, considered shallow and inaccurate by todays readers, detract from it's image.

My interest in the novel was from an historical viewpoint. It is based loosely on events that Cooper was a prolific writer with something like 40 novels to his credit, most written in the early 19th century.

It is based loosely on events that occurred during the French and Indian War, and provides an insight into the influence of the British and French occupation prior to the Revolutionary War.

Cooper's writing style is somewhat laborious which has kept me from reading any of his other novels.

I gave it 4 stars because of it's significance and position in the history of American Literature. View 1 comment. Oct 09, Kate rated it did not like it Shelves: american-classics.

While the movie was quite good-the book is truly a wonder. The Fort it's still there and worth visiting was built to control the important inland waterway from New York City to Montreal, and occupied a key forward location on the frontier between Ne This is another famous book that most people only seem to know through the movie version.

The Fort it's still there and worth visiting was built to control the important inland waterway from New York City to Montreal, and occupied a key forward location on the frontier between New York and New France.

If you happen to see the Fort you will notice that Fort William Henry is designed in an irregular square fortification with bastions on the corners, in a design that was intended to repel Indian attacks, but not necessarily withstand attack from an enemy armed with artillery such as the French.

The fort was surrounded on three sides by a dry moat, with the fourth side sloping down to the lake. The only access to the fort was by a bridge across the moat.

It housed about soldiers. In Col. In August of French forces totaling some 8, soldiers, consisting of 3, regulars, 3, militia and nearly 2, Native Americans from various tribes laid siege to the Fort.

Due to the inability or some have deemed it "cowardice" of General Webb in not sending reinforcements, Col Monro had no other recourse than to surrender.

Allowed the full honors of war which means the British can keep their arms and unit colors; the weapons can not be loaded; ammunition must be left behind; they couldn't engage in hostilities with French forces for 18 months and an exchange of prisoners the British marched out of the Fort and were promptly massacred by the Indian forces of the French.

This is something of a black mark for the French commander- Montcalm, who had responsibility for their safety according to the Laws of War.

Sadly, in reality, "Laws" of war tend to be a ridiculous construct of civilians and tend to come into existence post-incident.

But I digress- this book has this event and historical situation as its backdrop. This is the story of the famous Anglo scout Hawkeye and his Mohican companions Chingachook and Uncas father and son.

What follows is a heroic tale of Hawkeye and his companions racing to protect the women and their two British companions.

I will not spoil the plot-it is worth reading. What makes this book shine isn't the plot but rather the background- America when it was a new nation and covered in unexplored, by the British, wilderness.

This world does not exist any more save in these pages of Cooper's magnificent novel. Take a trip to an America of the past and revel in the descriptions of familiar locales that are nothing like what they were in the past.

It is a truly wonderful book that tells an exciting story, yet the setting -the vast American wilderness and the Native Americans who people it are what make this a classic.

Highly recommended to any one that appreciates good literature. View all 6 comments. Mar 02, Werner rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Fans of 19th-century literature.

Shelves: classics , historical-fiction. Note: I've just edited this review slightly to correct a chronological typo. When I read this book the first time, I was nine, not seven years old --I knew, when I wrote the first draft of this review, that I was in 4th grade the first time, so I don't know what I was thinking when I typed "seven!

Newly transferred to parochial school, I stumbled on it in what passed for a school library: two shelves of donated books.

I didn't mind the style I was a weird kid , and it actually had a lot to appeal to a boy reader: Indians, gunfights and knife fights on land and water, chases, captures, escapes, and the appeal of some actual history thrown in.

It left me with a solid liking for Cooper, and interest in reading more by him though I've only scratched the surface there. Mark Twain launched the attack with a hatchet job titled "Fenimore Cooper's Literary Offenses" see below , and in the next generation, Charles Neider's verdict was snide and disparaging.

The probability that Twain was motivated by professional jealousy as much as anything else, and the fact that Neider was a Washington Irving partisan who saw Cooper as dangerous competition for the highest laurels, don't seem to have discouraged today's critics from taking their assessments as the last word in Cooper criticism; indeed, they pile on the added condemnation that he held incorrect political views, which, for today's critical clerisy, is enough to damn a writer to eternal literary-critical hell.

As a high-school student, I recall watching Clifton Fadiman, the favorite 16mm talking head of English classes of that day, sneering at this book as a "dead classic" --which, having actually read it, confirmed my opinion of Fadiman's critical incompetence.

Balzac was a fan, going so far as to say of him that "had his characterizations been sharper, he would have been the master novelist of us all.

My own assessment of Cooper, and of this work in particular, isn't uncritical. There's no denying that his prose style, even by the standards of his day, is particularly dense, wordy and florid.

This is especially notable in much of his dialogue. Even granting that in upper and middle-class speech tended to be more formal than ours, it's difficult to imagine anyone speaking in as orotund a manner as most of the characters here, especially in some of these contexts.

In fairness to Cooper, though, it's not true that none of his characters have speaking patterns that are distinct and reasonably reflect who they are; and David Gamut, the character with, IMO, the most ridiculously fulsome speech, is to a degree intended as comic relief.

His plotting doesn't hold up as well to a read by a year-old as by a nine-year-old kid; some of the character's decisions are foolhardy, and there are plot points that strike me as improbable though not the ones that Twain cites.

While I don't necessarily mind authorial intrusion in the narrative, he uses it here a bit too much. And this edition could also have benefited from the inclusion of a map.

For all that, though, the positives for me outweighed the negatives. He delivers an adventure yarn that's pretty well-paced, absorbing and suspenseful.

The characters are clearly-drawn, distinct, realistic, round, and complex, and evoke real reader reactions. Actual history is incorporated into the narrative in a seamless way.

The portrayal of Indians and Indian culture, while not the treatment of them as blandly homogenized, gentle New Agers that modern monolithic "multiculturalism" would prescribe, is basically a realistic one that derived partly from first-hand contacts, and more knowledgeable than most white literary treatments would have been.

While he sometimes refers to them as "savages," --and it's fair to note that they are people who, in real life, at times DID torture captives and kill noncombatants-- he doesn't demonize them or make them out to be stupid, unfeeling brutes.

Like whites, individuals can be villains, like Magua, but other individuals can be very good; title character Uncas is portrayed as an admirable embodiment of masculine virtues, and the author actually contrasts Indian culture with Anglo-European culture to the disadvantage of the latter in several places.

Critics of Romantic school action-adventure fiction tend to deny that it has any serious messages partly because they don't want to see messages they don't like, or recognize serious thought in a despised source , but they're present here nevertheless, and related to the above.

Moral qualities such as courage, honor, loyalty, kindness and self-sacrifice, generosity, and love for family and friends are both praised and presented by favorable example, while the opposite qualities are disparaged.

It's no accident that Uncas, an Indian depicted at a time when many people despised Indians, is the title character and real hero of the book, and that Cora, the strongest female character and Cooper's clear favorite, is also the one with some Negro descent on her mother's side.

In this respect, the racial attitudes here, IMO, show an advance in enlightenment on the part of the maturing Cooper that isn't evident in earlier works like The Spy and The Pioneers , the two other Cooper novels I've read.

There's even a hint that for Cooper, the idea of interracial romance isn't a complete taboo, though the presentation is subtle.

True, Hawkeye, who obviously carries some emotional baggage from being disparaged by other whites for his Indian associations, stresses his un-crossed bloodlines with no Indian "taint," and won't consider the idea of intermarriage though his bond with his Indian friends is subversive of his culturally-conditioned racism.

But to automatically assume, as some readers do, that Hawkeye must always speak for Cooper is, I think, a mistake.

He is who he is, warts and all, and that includes being opinionated and fallible it's not likely, for instance, that his disdain for books and literacy was shared by an author who was a professional writer!

Cooper was a strong Christian, and this book has several naturally-integrated references to religious faith and prayer, as well as a couple of short discussions of religious belief.

The type of Christian belief Cooper finds congenial comes across as one that's not doctrinally dogmatic and narrow as opposed to Gamut's Calvinism , and not judgmental in consigning others to hellfire and damnation.

When Hawkeye refuses to translate Colonel Munro's statement, "Tell them, that the Being we all worship, under different names, will be mindful of their charity; and that the time shall not be distant when we may assemble around his throne without distinction of sex, rank, or color," this reader perceived Munro, not Hawkeye, as speaking for the author!

A major factor in my rating was the ending. This accords with the Romantic penchant for tragedy, which I don't share as strongly; I much prefer happy endings.

But the ending here, while I didn't like it, does seem to have an inherently fated quality that grows naturally out of the arc of the story.

Since Twain based most of his attacks on Cooper on The Deerslayer which I want to read eventually , it seems better to respond to his essay in detail whenever I review that book.

But where he makes general or specific criticisms that apply to this book, it's appropriate to mention those here. First, as to Cooper overusing the device of a twig breaking and alerting someone to movement, on this reading I looked particularly for that.

It occurs once, in a page book. Second, Twain does NOT establish that it's impossible, in a fog, to backtrack the trail of a spent cannonball that, by his own admission, would skip and roll over damp ground, leaving marks; he establishes that it would be quite difficult --in other words, the sort of thing heroes or heroines in action fiction often do, where less capable characters wouldn't be able to.

And third, if it's an iron-clad law of nature that every mark in the bottom of a running stream is more or less instantly totally erased by the current, we're at a loss to account for fossilized impressions of such marks that endured until they turned to rock.

In practice, it makes a great deal of difference how deep the mark is, how mallable the bottom is, how fast the current is moving, and how much time elapsed since the mark was made.

Cooper isn't the one being unobservant on that point. Reading this book was a cool trip down memory lane; it was amazing how much detail, and often how much exact wording, I remembered!

It's definitely re-whetted my appetite to read more of his work one of these years! Of course, there are a lot of physical to-read piles in my office to be hacked through, or at least reduced, first View all 19 comments.

This quote from Shakespeare seems to state that the book will not show the racist tendencies of the time, but display the different races in equal light.

While writing a historical fiction, being a completely anti-racist novel is not possible but Cooper seems to state with his head note that the color of skin does not matter.

Despite the surface level image of a heroic narrative of Native Americans, Cooper betrays an underline racist agenda, much like the opinions of his own protagonists, which comes through in relationship tension and through the inversion of the native tribes, which played into the racist propaganda of the times increasing tension.

Last of the Mohicans is part of a series which tells the adventures of Hawkeye as the main protagonist. Hawkeye is a white male, who has in a sense, disowned his race and ancestors and lives in the wild with the Mohicans.

Yet while Hawkeye seems to see his race in such a bad light to live out in the wild, he takes extreme pride in being a white male.

During racial arguments, Hawkeye always draws attention to his race, demonstrating that it is of such great importance to his personal identity and something of which others must be made aware of.

It is a method he uses to smooth over the conversation right before be goes into how he is genuine white and above them. No one ever comments on this or corrects Hawkeye of his ways showing that it is not something that he should be ashamed of or in any way wrong.

I find it interesting that instead of saying we, Hawkeye uses the Mohicans and I.
