A historical novel set in early 18th century Switzerland about a young woman from modest nobility who falls in love with a man from the lower ranks and soon discovers that his father is an executioner and that he will also likely be an executioner. The Headsman is the last of Cooper's novels with a European setting.
James Fenimore Cooper (1789-1851) was an American novelist, travel writer, and social critic, regarded as the first great American writer of fiction. He was famed for his action-packed plots and his vivid, if somewhat idealized, portrayal of American life in the forest and at sea.
