Across north-eastern America the armies of Britain and France struggle for ascendancy. Their conflict, however, overlays older struggles between nations of Native Americans for possession of the same lands and between the native peoples and white colonisers. Through these layers of conflict Cooper threads a thrilling narrative, in which Cora and Alice Munro, daughters of a British commander on the front line of the colonial war, attempt to join their father. Thwarted by Magua, the sinister 'Indian runner', they find help in the person of Hawk-eye, the white woodsman, and his companions, the Mohican Chingachgook and Uncas, his son, the last of his tribe. Cooper's novel is full of vivid incident - pursuits through wild terrain, skirmishes, treachery and brutality - but reflects also on the interaction between the colonists and the native peoples. Through the character of Hawkeye, Cooper raises lasting questions about the practises of the American frontier and the eclipse of the indigenous cultures.

    " Cooper has a long-winded, tedious style that grated on me. "

    " Yeah, I know it has it's flaws, but this was hands down my favorite book during my childhood. I re-read it every few years, and I still love it. "

    " As a historical analysis of an era I found this fascinating and extremely respectful, especially with regards to the topography of native culture and the natural physicality of the land. With regards to the characterisation of the two female protagonists, I found the book frustratingly narrow and one dimensional particularly in relation to Alice, whose tremulous fainting, and breathy emotionality seemed to be verging on the collapsing neurotic and always arising at the most inopportune times. Fennimore's own cultural conditioning obviously occluded his ability to properly comprehend and interpret the female emotional landscape, and ultimately this proved to be limiting factor in my enjoyment of this book. Interestingly I watched the movie straight after finishing the book and found the re imagined Alice to be a far more worthy, inspiring and realistic portrayal of the truth of womanhood. Alice retains her innocence, naivety and youth in the film finding the true essence of courage in softness and vulnerability without having to resort to the stereotypical Lara croft tomb raider cliche, or the quivering neurotic as delivered by the book..

    " Nice. Very old. Kind of boring at times. Overall I liked it though. "
