Reading the Leather Stocking tales in chronological order of the title character (Natty Bummpo) would require this book to be read after Deerslayer, Last of the Mohicans and Pathfinder. This is very unfortunate. I found the first 3 in the series to be enthralling in the scope of action and scene. This was not the case with The Pioneers. In his forward, Cooper states that this book was the most enjoyable of the tales to write. In my opinion, it is the most difficult to read. The action sequences are far between and seperated by dozens of pages of minute detail having very little to do with the plot. I found it almost impossible to focus without falling asleep.
