When Cooper's most memorable hero, Leatherstocking, started an American tradition by setting off into the sunset in The Pioneers, one early reader said of his departure, "I longed to go with him." American readers couldn't get enough of the Leatherstocking saga (collected in two Library of America volumes) and, fourteen years after he portrayed the death of Natty Bumppo in The Prairie, Cooper brought him back in The Pathfinder, or The Inland Sea (1841). During the Seven Years War, just after the events narrated in The Last of the Mohicans, Natty brings the daughter of a British sergeant to her father's station on the Great Lakes, where the French and their Indian allies are plotting a treacherous ambush. Here, for the first time, he falls in love with a woman, before Cooper manages bring off Leatherstocking's most poignant, and perhaps his most revealing, escape. The Deerslayer (1842) brings the saga full circle and follows the young Natty on his first warpath. Instinctively gifted in the arts of the forest, pious in his respect for the unspoiled wilderness on which he loves to gaze, honorable to friend and foe alike, stoic under torture, and cool under fire, the young Leatherstocking emerges as Cooper's noblest figure of the American frontier. Enacting a rite of passage both for its hero and for the culture he comes to represent, this last book in the series glows with a timelessness that readers everywhere will find enchanting.

James Fenimore Cooper by Thomas R Lounsbury( Book )

2 editions published in 1981 in Undetermined and English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This account of Cooper's life is one of the earliest in print. According to biographer Thomas Raynesford Lounsbury, when Cooper lay on his deathbed in 1851, he enjoined his family to permit no authorized account of his life. A wish uttered at such a time, Lounsbury argues, has the weight of a command. Thus, the sources for this biography were drawn from sketches of his career, which were found in magazines and encyclopedias
