Last of the Mohicans

Length: 3 Pages 673 Words

I did my book critique on The Last of The Mohicans by James Fenimore Cooper. James Fenimore Cooper was from a really rich family. He was born in 1789 in Burlington New Jersey, and had six brothers and sisters. He attended Yale when he was thirteen, but was expelled shortly later. In 1806 James became a sailor for a year and then spent three years in the Navy. In 1811 he married Susan Augusta De Lancey. He wrote The Last of The Mohicans in 1826. James Fenimore Cooper died in 1851, and is one of the most famous writers in the world. In The Last of The Mohicans the French-Indian War is taking place. Duncan Heyward is escorting the Munro sisters from Fort Edward to Fort Henry, with Magua, who is an Indian and is their guide. The book takes place in the late 1750s, and in western New York. The plot of the book is that Cora and Alice are being escorted to their father, Colonel Munro, by Major Duncan Heyward and the Indian Magua. Later they meet Hawkeye, who is a hunter and a scout, and Davi Continue...


His closest friends are the Indians Chingachgook and Uncas, but he has no Indian blood in him at all. She is one of the most admirable people in the book, and mainly worries about keeping her younger sister safe. Then Hawkeye shoots Magua and he finally dies. My opinion of the book is that it was really good. Hawkeye acts as the hero in the book. Hawkeye and the Mohicans come and save them and kill all of the Hurons, except Magua, who escapes. I would recommend the book to other people because I thought it was a good book and I enjoyed it. He is the villian because of what has happened to him from the Europeans. He was the chief of the Huron tribe, but is not anymore because of being so drunk often. She also has a black mother, unlike Alice, who has a white mother. Hawkeye accuses Magua of betraying his group by leading them the wrong way. Hawkeye and the Mohicans find Maguas trail a few days later and find them. She acts like an average maiden does. He has a nickname, Le Renard Subtil, which means the Subtle Fox.
