The Prairie marks the final chapter in James Fenimore Cooper’s great saga of American frontiersman Natty Bumppo. Though nearly ninety in 1804, Bumppo, now on the Great Plains, is still a competent frontiersman and trapper. Once more he is drawn into conflict with society in the form of an emigrant party led by the surly Ishmael Bush and his miscreant brother-in-law, Abiram White. And once again, this great man of nature is called upon to exhibit his courage and resourcefulness to rescue the innocent.

  • “We still read Cooper today because he was the first of our authors to seize upon the dramatic possibilities of that unfallen western world that stands at the beginning of our national life.”

    " The Leatherstocking Tales were pretty cool adventures with honourable people in them. I really liked The Deerslayer. None of them were fabulous but they were pretty cool. They were kind of the same after you'd read a few of them. "

    " 11 months and 1200 pages later, my Fenimore Cooper odyssey is over. I'd most recommend the first Natty Bumppo book he wrote, The Pioneers... if you run out of other things to read. Last of the Mohicans and The Prairie are good also. The Deerslayer is ponderous. "

About the Author

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.
