Overview

*Illustrated
*Includes Table of Contents

In American literature, James Fenimore Cooper is a name that Americans have heard of but can’t always place, when compared to the works of individuals like Edgar Allan Poe and Emerson and Thoreau. But every American comes across his work, and today he is best remembered as a novelist who wrote numerous sea-stories and the historical novels known as the Leatherstocking Tales, featuring frontiersman Natty Bumppo. Perhaps his most famous work is The Last of the Mohicans, often regarded as his masterpiece and well known as a movie title.

Despite his relative lack of name recognition, he was well regarded in his day. Cooper was admired across the Atlantic by writers such as Honore de Balzac, and composer Franz Schubert, among others.

This edition of Cooper’s Wyandotte, or The Hutted Knoll is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and is illustrated with over a dozen pictures of Cooper.

About the Author

The creator of two genres that became staples of American literature — the sea romance and the frontier adventure — James Fenimore Cooper (1789-1851) was born in New Jersey, raised in the wilderness of New York, and spent five years at sea before embarking on his successful writing career. Among Cooper’s many novels, his best-known books are the five "Leatherstocking" tales — including The Deerslayer and The Last of the Mohicans — each featuring the fictional hero Natty Bumppo.
