A wide, and, apparently, an impervious boundary of forests, severed the possessions of the hostile provinces of France and England. The hardy colonist, and the trained European who fought at his side, frequently expended months in struggling against the rapids of the streams, or in effecting the rugged passes of the mountains, in quest of an opportunity to exhibit their courage in a more martial conflict.

From the Jacket

"[Cooper's] sympathy is large, and his humor is as genuine -- and as perfectly unaffected -- as his art."
- Joseph Conrad

About the Author

Leslie Fiedler is Samuel Clemens Professor and SUNY Distinguished Professor at SUNY Buffalo. One of the greatest living literary critics, his works include LOVE AND DEATH IN THE AMERICAN NOVEL (1960), AN END TO INNOCENCE (1955); NUDE CROQUET (1969), and FREAKS (1978).

From Our Editors

The success of the recent 20th Century Fox feature film, starring Daniel Day-Lewis, will ensure wide interest in this title--especially among reluctant readers. Bringing the French and Indian war to vivid life, the succinct retellings, short chapters, and big, easy-to-read type distinguish this Step-Up Classic from other adaptations of classic stories.
