July 1757. disillusioned with the white man's life and choosing to live in the wilderness, Hawk-eye – also known as Natty Bumppo – is a frontier scout in the French-Indian War. While making his way through the forests of upstate New York, he comes across two English sisters, Cora and Alice Munro, who are travelling to their father's garrison at Fort William Henry, accompanied by Major Heyward. Their guide is an Indian runner called Magua, who is leading them into a trap. Their only hope lies with Hawk-eye and his two companions, Chingachgook and Uncas – the last of the Mohican tribe. Cooper was born in 1789, just six years after the end of the American War of Independence. He was fascinated by America's colonial past and captured it truthfully in all its bloodshed and complexity, showing how Indian tribes fought against each other, as well as against the pioneers. Academic and American culture critic Sarah Churchwell provides a new introduction, whilst the detail and realism of the story is captured in a series of atmospheric oil paintings by Robert Hunt.
