About Book


"Excellent edition for class use, what with both of Cooper's prefaces and the series in general. AND an essay to provide historical context, a chronology, a bibliography--and still more. This should be the edition of choice for the classroom."--Cameron C. Nnickels, James Madison University
"Clearly and carefully edited, this volume is a very useful addition to your excellent series."--E.N. Feltskog, University of Wisconsin

Book Description
The Pathfinder (1840), Cooper's most picturesque novel and the fourth of the five Leatherstocking Tales, is a naval story set on the Great Lakes of the 1750s. Fashioned from Cooper's own experience as a midshipman on Lake Ontario in 1808-09, the novel revives Natty Bumpo (who had died in The
Prairie), and illuminates Cooper's interest in American history with his concern for social development.

Download Description
Cooper undertakes a "hazardous experiment" of resurrecting one of his most popular characters, for he had killed off Bumppo in his previous incarnation. This book is noted as a classic account of the American wilderness.
