Yep! Five stars! Amazing story. At first, the writing style was hard for me to understand, but shortly into the book, I was so absorbed into the story that the style made it that more wonderful. ( )

Here's what I wrote after reading in 1986: 'A tale of seven or so individuals caught in the politic and physical gun fire between the French, English, and Native Americans during the mid 1700's in the lands of New York around Horican Lake. Book gave extensive insights into the ways of native people as they adjusted to the takeover of their lands. Most memorable character: Uncas, the last of the chiefs and bold warriors of the Mohicans." Note: Horican Lake was the name assigned by Cooper for Lake George, which was called "Andia-ta-roc-te" by native people. ( )

So listened using Librivox. Some underwhelming readers for this book. (In future I may try to avoid multiple readers for sane book). Thought plot as laid out in the movie (based on the 1936 movie) was better than Cooper's plot. ( )

… The book was first published in 1826, and conveys the prejudices of the time. This is primarily an adventure story written from a European viewpoint. The "dusky, savage" Huron kidnappers are the villains, and the Mohicans are stereotypically romanticized as courageous and stoic. However, even complimentary comments sometimes indicate underlying prejudice as when… scout Hawkeye observes to Chingachgook, "You are a just man for an Indian." The term "squaw" is used several times.

It was a feature peculiar to the colonial wars of North America, that the tolls and dangers of the wilderness were to be encountered before the adverse hosts could meet.
