Its the second book of the Leatherstocking Tales pentalogy & the best known. The Pathfinder, published 14 years later in 1840, is its sequel. The story is set in 1757, during the French & Indian War (the Seven Years War), when France and Great Britain battled for control of N. America. During this war, the French depended on its Native American allies to help fight the more numerous British colonists in the Northeast frontier areas.The novel was one of the most popular in English in its time, altho critics identified narrative flaws. Its length & formal prose style have limited its appeal to later readers, yet The Last of the Mohicans remains widely read in American literature courses. It has been adapted numerous times for films, TV movies & cartoons.
