Thereafter Heyward escapes with Alice, while Hawk-eye remains to save Uncas. Gamut convinces a Huron to allow him and his magical bear Hawk-eye in disguise to approach Uncas, and they untie him. Uncas dons the bear disguise, Hawk-eye wears Gamut's clothes, and Gamut stays in a corner mimicking Uncas. Uncas and Hawk-eye escape by traveling to the Delaware village where Cora is being held, just as the Hurons that suspect something is amiss and find Magua tied up in the cave.

During the ensuing council meeting, Uncas is revealed to be a Mohican, a once-dominant tribe closely related to the Delawares. Tamenund , the sage of the Delawares, sides with Uncas and frees the prisoners, except Cora, whom he awards to Magua according to tribal custom. This makes a showdown between the Hurons and Delawares inevitable, but to satisfy laws of hospitality, Tamenund gives Magua a three-hour head start before pursuit.

While the Delawares are using preparing for battle, David Gamut escapes and tells his companions that Magua has positioned his men in the woods between the Huron and Delaware villages. Undeterred, Uncas, Hawkeye, and the Delawares march into the woods to fight the Hurons. The Delawares vanquish the Hurons in a bloody battle and ultimately capture the Huron village, but Magua escapes with Cora and two other Hurons; Uncas, Hawk-eye, and Heyward pursue them up to a high mountain. In a fight at the edge of a cliff, Cora, Uncas, and Magua are killed.

The novel concludes with a lengthy account of the funerals of Uncas and Cora, and Hawk-eye reaffirms his friendship with Chingachgook. Tamenund prophesies: "The pale-faces are masters of the earth, and the time of the red-men has not yet come again According to Susan Fenimore Cooper , the author's eldest daughter, Cooper first conceived the idea for the book while visiting the Adirondack Mountains in with a party of English gentlemen.

They passed on to Lake George and Glens Falls. Impressed with the caves behind the falls, one member of the party suggested that "here was the very scene for a romance. Cooper promised Stanley "that a book should actually be written, in which these caves should have a place; the, idea of a romance essentially Indian in character then first suggesting itself to his mind. Cooper began work on the novel immediately. He and his family stayed for the summer in a cottage belonging to a friend, situated on the Long Island shore of the Sound, opposite Blackwell's Island, not far from Hallett's Cove the area is now part of Astoria.

He wrote quickly and completed the novel in the space of three or four months. He suffered a serious illness thought to have been brought on by sunstroke [19] and, at one point, he dictated the outline of the fight between Magua and Chingachgook 12th chapter , to his wife, who thought that he was delirious. In the novel, Hawkeye refers to Lake George as the Horican. Sacrement , was "too complicated". Horican he found on an old map of the area; it was a French transliteration of a native group who had once lived in the area.

Cooper grew up in Cooperstown, New York , the frontier town founded by his father. His daughter said that as a young man he had few opportunities to meet and talk with Native Americans: "occasionally some small party of the Oneidas , or other representatives of the Five Nations , had crossed his path in the valley of the Susquehanna River , or on the shores of Lake Ontario , where he served when a midshipman in the navy.

By using the name Uncas for one of his characters, he seemed to confuse the two regional tribes: the Mohegan of Connecticut, of which Uncas had been a well-known sachem , and the Mahican of upstate New York. The popularity of Cooper's book helped spread the confusion.

In the period when Cooper was writing, deputations from the Western tribes frequently traveled through the region along the Mohawk River, on their way to New York or Washington, D. He made a point of visiting these parties as they passed through Albany and New York. On several occasions, he followed them all the way to Washington to observe them for longer. He also talked to the military officers and interpreters who accompanied them. According to Susan Cooper, its success was "greater than that of any previous book from the same pen" and "in Europe the book produced quite a startling effect.

Over time the book grew to be regarded by some as the first Great American Novel. Cooper's novels were popular in their day, but contemporary and subsequent 19th century reviewers were often critical, or dismissive. For example, the reviewer of the London Magazine May described the novel as "clearly by much the worst of Mr Cooper's performances.

Bestselling Series

Twain complained that Cooper lacked a variety of style and was overly wordy. In the early 's Twain scholar Bernard DeVoto found that there was more to the essay, and pieced together a second one from the extra writing, titled "Fenimore Cooper's Further Literary Offenses," in which Twain re-writes a small section of The Last of the Mohicans , claiming that Cooper, "the generous spendthrift", used "extra and unnecessary words" in the original version.

Re-reading the book in his later years, Cooper noted some inconsistencies of plot and characterization, particularly the character of Munro.
