Publisher's Summary

The Last of the Mohicans is a riveting tale set during colonial times, when the French and Indian War is in full swing in the western part of New York. During an attack by the French on a British outpost, two young sisters, Alice and Cora, are guided through the forest by an Indian guide and a British Army Colonel, to find their father. Several strangers they meet along the way join them on their journey which include two Mohican companions, who are the very last of their kind.
On their journey the group discovers that one of them, Magua, is a traitor and a scout for the Huron which are allied with the French army. After the traitor is ousted, he returns with Huron reinforcement and the group is attacked, and four of the members, including the two sisters, are captured. Hawk-Eye and the two Mohicans escape, vowing to return and rescue their friends. While they wait, the girls and two other members of the group are held captive and live amongst the Huron.
After a triumphant rescue, the group is reunited and continues their journey on to the English stronghold that has been taken by the French. Alice and Cora find their father only to be recaptured once again. An elaborate plan, full of surprises, is put into action as the Mohicans and their friends try to save the girls once more.

Though James Fenimore Cooper uses verbose and decorated language at times, the read is made quite enjoyable with the charming voice of David McCallion. At times the book tends to get a bit drawn out in comparison to the movie, but the overall story is very interesting and accurately depicts the views of Native Americans within the United States.

The story is a very nice one following Alice and Cora as they are guided through the forest by an Indian guide and a British colonel, in search of their father. Through a series of mishaps and adventures, Alice and Cora are eventually able to find their father, but only to be captured. It falls on the Mohicans to band together and save them once more.

If you were a fan of the movie, you’ll probably enjoy the book as well, and this version read by David McCallion won't disappoint you!

A classic.

I found the language a bit flowery and sometimes hard to follow, understanding it's age.
