James Fenimore Cooper

The Last of the Mohicans

The Last of the Mohicans is one of the most famous tales of pioneer American adventure. Set during the French and Indian War, Mohicans tells the tale of the journey of two daughters to meet their father, a colonel, at Fort William Henry. The road is long and dangerous, and they, along with their American and Native guides, encounter adventure at each step.
Mohicans is actually the second book in a pentalogy, the Leatherstocking Tales pentalogy. While the pentalogy saw success in its time, today Mohicans is by far the best-known of the books.

    In these pages, Lenni-Le­nape, Lenope, Delawares, Wa­panachki, and Mo­hi­cans, all mean the same peo­ple, or tribes of the same stock. The Mengwe, the Maquas, the Min­goes, and the Iro­quois, though not all strictly the same, are iden­ti­fied fre­quently by the speak­ers, be­ing po­lit­i­cally con­fed­er­ated and op­posed to those just named. Mingo was a term of pe­cu­liar re­proach, as were Mengwe and Maqua in a less de­gree.
