Why this book?
This classic adventure novel, first published in 1826, is still worth reading for the vividness of the wilderness landscape it brings to life; for its well-researched backdrop of the North American theater of the Seven Years War (the so-called French and Indian War); and for its sympathetic, if highly romanticized, portrayal of its Native American and Anglo-American characters. The novel is also important as a cultural artifact. Its influence has been deep and enduring, not only as a piece of literature but as a formative element in the USA’s national mythology and self-image.
