This volume contains The Pioneers (1823), The Last of the Mohicans (1826), and The Prairie (1827). Leatherstocking first appears in The Pioneers,involving himself in the struggle to control the changing American land and to determine what sort of civilization will replace the rapidly vanishing wilderness.

The Prairie takes up Natty in his eighties, driven by the continuous march of civilization to his last refuge on the Great Plains across the Mississippi.

Library of America
ISBN: 0-940450-21-6
Series Number: 27
Product Code: 200271
Price: $35.00
Blake Nevius, editor. Cooper's epic of the western course of the American frontier follows the exploits of the scout Natty Bumppo from the French and Indian Wars to the early 19th century. This volume contains The Pathfinder (1841) and The Deerslayer(1842). In The Pathfinder, Natty brings the daughter of a British sergeant to her father's station on the Great Lakes, where the French and their Indian allies are plotting a treacherous ambush. The Deerslayer brings the saga full circle and follows the young Natty on his first warpath. The young Leatherstocking emerges as Cooper's noblest figure of the American frontier, pious in his respect for the unspoiled wilderness, honorable to friend and foe, and cool under fire. A companion volume contains The Pioneers, The Last of the Mohicans, and The Prairie.
