This is a beautiful old book. It is an adventure set in the forests of North America during the Seven Years War (1756-1763) between Great Britain and France. The plot revolves around the efforts of Alice and Cora Munro to join their father, who is the commander of Fort William Henry near Lake Champlain. Their course is blocked by Magua, the leader of a group of Huron Indians who are allied to the French. His schemes are frustrated by Uncas, the last of the Mohicans, his father Chingachgook, and Natty Bumppo. The book is characterized by a series of thrilling attacks, captures, flights and rescues. This became a film with Daniel Day Lewis.
