Toda una tradicion de novelas de aventuras en el oeste estadounidense, entre los indios pieles rojas, que aun perdura en nuestros dias en la literatura y en el cine, fue la iniciada por Fenimore Cooper, un distinguido escritor de ese pais, que a principios del siglo XIX escribio una serie de novelas, que siguen entre las mas destacadas del genero y de las cuales El ultimo de los mohicanos es no solo la mas conocida sino la mejor. El elemento romantico que se mezcla con las aventuras descritas, la acertada descripcion de personajes ha hecho que todos consideren que la obra de Fenimore Cooper trascienda las limitaciones de la novela de aventura para convertirse en gran literatura. Dicen que Schubert, en su lecho de muerte, pedia que le mandaran novelas de Fenimore Cooper y esa popularidad ha llegado hasta nuestros dias.

Cooper here tells the story of the stolid colonial scout Hawkeye, who, with his two Indian companions, stumbles on a party of British soldiers conducting two fair maidens to their father, the commander of British Fort William Henry, during the French and Indian War.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kandie Miller | 2/9/2014

    " For some reason I was expecting a good romance in this book, which is probably why I only gave it 3 stars, that said I still enjoyed it a whole bunch. I can't believe it was written in 1826! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 George King | 2/6/2014

    " This rating is for the Daniel Day-Lewis film, not the turgid Fenimore Cooper novel. The inspired acting, spectacular scenery, and gorgeous sound track brought the book to life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeymei | 1/23/2014

    " It was surprisingly hard to get into...Probably not the right choice for my at work/break time book, more of a sit down and read it at once type thing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Harry Robinson | 1/16/2014

    " I remember reading this classic many years ago. I enjoyed it then, and I enjoyed it again this time. Having seen the movie in the interim, I was surprised at how different the movie was from the original book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hannah Shelton | 1/9/2014

    " Well-rounded book. Suspense, funny, great historical content, tender at moments. Surprise ending. Fitting with those adventure stories like Huck Finn of early-America. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sandy | 1/4/2014

    " I remember reading this book in high school. My sister skipped my bookmark ahead one chapter while I was getting lunch and I didn't even notice for 10 pages. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Martha Johnson | 12/13/2013

    " Totally great -- in its context. The language tripped me up more than I thought it would. Stylized and dated. But, didn't matter. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael SaharaFrog | 11/30/2013

    " The style of writing is a little bit dated, but still well worth the time to read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cindy J | 11/5/2013

    " I love the movie with Daniel Day lewis based on this book. So, I thought the book would be better. I didn't enjoy it, and after attempting three times to read it, finally gave up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 10/12/2013

    " I hate to give books that seem to stand the test of time a bad review. But this book was not my cup of tea! I am so glad I am done. NOW I will leave it up to my prof to convince me of WHY he thinks it is a good book. He has his work cut our for him. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Val | 9/25/2013

    " Watch the movie, it's much better. The singing dude is what kills me -- how did they ever survive with that lunatic hanging around singing at all moments???? This book should be classed as cruel and unusual punishment. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Krista McCracken | 8/10/2013

    " Filled with the racial stereotypes of the era, but includes interesting uses of language and great landscape descriptions. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kitty Tomlinson | 2/25/2013

    " Classic story of the two daughters of an army general captured by the Indians and rescued by Hawkeye, Uncas and Cingachgook. Awesome... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacki | 2/21/2013

    " A beautifully written story, but somewhat confusing because of the conflicts between the different Indian tribes. Worth reading... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michael Pakkala | 9/16/2012

    " While the symbolism behind Hawkeye in comparison to the idea of the American man is interesting, the lack of a gripping story and the overused cliches (how many times can a wooden stick give away a persons location!) really made me drag my feet through this novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicua | 9/17/2011

    " brilliant book, totally entrancing, couldn't put it down "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ann Marie | 2/26/2011

    " I know...I know..."but it's a classic"...way to many words...went on and on forever "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Chris Marquette | 10/6/2010

    " This novel has neither good prose nor good plot, the result being the worst "classic" I've ever read. I hope I never have to read anything else by Cooper. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Twila | 4/11/2008

    " I liked the movie better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thomas Sheridan | 5/1/2007

    " I think this was the first novel I read. I still love it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Miriam | 11/14/2006

    " At times a little wordy and descriptive. Multiple names for some of the characters, made it a little confusing at times... but I liked this book. "

About the Author
Author James Fenimore Cooper

James Fenimore Cooper (1789–1851), the first major American novelist, was the son of a wealthy landowner who founded Cooperstown, New York. He attended Yale and served in the navy before turning to writing, winning international fame with The Spy (1821). After The Pioneers (1823), public fascination with the character of Natty Bumppo led him to write a series of sequels that gradually unfold the entire life of the frontier scout.
