Cooper James Fenimore The Pioneers


James Fenimore Cooper was a prolific and popular American writer of the first half of the 19th century. His historical romances of frontier and Indian life in the early American days created a unique form of American literature. The fourth work chronologically in Cooper's Leatherstocking Tales, The Pioneers is a historical novel that follows the later life of Natty Bumppo. Already introduced by the previous novels as the archetypal American frontiersman and friend to Indians, Natty now struggles with hunting and new societal laws that restrict the freedom of the wilderness he has always known. Just as accessible and enjoyable for today's modern readers as it would have been when first published, the novel is one of the great works of American literature and continues to be widely read throughout the world.

Cooper James Fenimore Wyandotte; or, The Hutted Knoll


James Fenimore Cooper was a prolific and popular American writer of the first half of the 19th century. His historical romances of frontier and Indian life in the early American days created a unique form of American literature. Wyandotte is set in New York state during the American Revolution. The main character of the novel is an Indian, "Saucy Nick", also called Wyandotte ("Great Chief), whose depictions violate stereo types of Native Americans. The novel Wyandotte arrived at a time when a patriotic mythology about the American Revolution was developing, and Cooper's somber tale of the sufferings of an isolated family in upstate New York during the Revolution was not congruent with the celebratory stories then being told.
