The Pioneers (Oxford World's Classics)
Synopses & Reviews
The first of the five Leatherstocking Tales, The Pioneers is perhaps the most realistic and beautiful of the series. Drawing on his own experiences, Cooper brilliantly describes Frontier life, providing a fascinating backdrop to the real heart of the novel--the competing claims to land ownership of Native Americans and settlers. This edition follows the publication of The Last of the Mohicans in the World's Classics series and uses the standard text approved by the Modern Language Association.
The first of Cooper's five "Leatherstocking Tales" and the one that incorporates most fully his own experience of childhood on the early American frontier.
Includes bibliographical references (p. [xv]-xvii).
