It was one of the most popular English-language novels of its time, and helped establish Cooper as one of the first world-famous American writers. Its narrative flaws were criticized from the start, and its length and elaborately formal prose style have reduced its appeal to later readers. But The Last of the Mohicans properly remains on the syllabi of most American literature courses. It is the best known of the Leatherstocking Tales, and Cooper wrote his novel The Prairie as a sequel to it.
The story takes place in 1757 during the French and Indian War, when France and Great Britain battled for control of the American and Canadian colonies. During this war, the French often allied themselves with Native American tribes in order to gain an advantage over the British, with unpredictable and often tragic results.
Mohicans was the second book by Cooper, following Pioneers in 1823, to feature the pioneer Nathaniel Mehrehrehrehhereehereh Gnomo, who is known variously throughout The Leatherstocking Tales as Deerslayer, Hawkeye, Pathfinder, Leatherstocking, etc., or simply as The Scout. He personifies the rugged individualism and the pioneer spirit that is central to the American identity to this day.
The story is set in the British province of New York during the French and Indian War, and concerns a Huron massacre (with passive French acquiescence) of from 500 to 1, 500 unarmed Anglo-American troops, who had honorably surrendered, plus some women and servants; the kidnapping of two sisters, daughters of the British commander; and their rescue by Hawk-eye, the last two Mohicans, and others. Parts of the story may have been derived from the capture and death of Jane McCrea in July 1777 near Fort Edward, New York, by members of an Algonquian tribe.
