Meet the Author

James Fenimore Cooper (September 15, 1789 – September 14, 1851) was a prolific and popular American writer of the early 19th century. His historical romances of frontier and Indian life in the early American days created a unique form of American literature. He lived most of his life in Cooperstown, New York, established by his father William. Cooper was a lifelong member of the Episcopal Church and in his later years contributed generously to it. He attended Yale University for three years but was expelled for misbehavior. Before embarking on his career as a writer he served in the U.S. Navy as a Midshipman which greatly influenced many of his novels and other writings. He is best remembered as a novelist who wrote numerous sea-stories and the historical novels known as the Leatherstocking Tales. Among naval historians his works on early U.S. naval history have been widely received but were sometimes criticized by Cooper's contemporaries. Among his most famous works is the Romantic novel The Last of the Mohicans, often regarded as his masterpiece.

    Cooper's writing style draws one is

    When I read this book as a child, I was drawn, for the first time, into a serious case of hero worship. Cooper makes Hawkeye a believable character, a little flawed, a little human.
    I hung on the edge of my seat as the destiny of each character was revealed, and felt empathy for Hawkeye as he experienced losses, but still managed to bravely "soldier on". I think I learned how to handle disappoints that life may offer with dignity from the characters in this book (and the other Leatherstocking Tales...I'm very glad that I read this book, and I look forward to re-reading it again soon.
