While portraying life in a new settlement on New York's Lake Otsego in the final years of the 18th century, Cooper deftly explores the cultural and philosophical underpinnings of the American experience. He contrasts the natural codes of the hunter and woodsman, Natty Bumpo, and his Indian friend, John Mokegan, with the more rigid structure of law required by a more complex society.

This is the fourth in Cooper's series of five books known as the Leatherstocking Tales, which were arranged according to the chronology of their hero, Natty Bumpo.

    " Ignorant me, I never knew classics could be such thrillers! I could say read it for the description of wild America in the 1700's, but I listened to it and got caught up in the breakneck speed of the plot. "

    " currently reading The Last of the Mohicans and The Pioneers, written by James Fenimore Cooper. We visited Cooper's Cave in Glens Falls, NY last summer - a scene in Last of the Mohicans. I can't wait to discuss this book next year during American Lit. "

    " I enjoyed The Prairie. I had never read Cooper before and really enjoyed the language usage. A throwback to childhood beliefs, that there are honorable people in the world, a very honorable Indian and good people. "
