Spanning the French and Indian war of the 18th century, and centring on the British province of New York, James Fenimore Cooper's classic epic about an ongoing struggle features bravery, campassion and ultimately tragedy. Forces at war, a brave rescue attempt and an untimely massacre converge to create a stunning masterpiece of classic fiction. Ideal as visual introductions to classic texts, "Graffex" titles are fast-moving, cinematic retellings of wellknown stories. Equally rewarding as comics, graphic novels or learning resources, the series uses specially commissioned full-colour artwork to retell some of the most incredible, influential and memorable tales in the canon of English literature. Speech bubbles feature direct quotes from the original text, running captions describe events in a clear manner and detailed footnotes translate challenging vocabulary and provide interesting background information. It's a wealth of key information that, critically, doesn't overwhelm or distract from the original story. Featuring photographs, paintings and maps, "Graffex" endmatters tell the story of each book in its wider geographical context. Text details the life of the author, the socio-political events which influenced the book and the impact the book had on the society of the time. Each title also features a double-page opening illustration and a full index.

A professor told me this was originally ment for children, but the subject matter is rather adult. For the most part this is a good book. The description of the land can get tedious, but it is neccessary for the tone of the story.
Cora is an interesting character. Her romance is the element which drives most of the story. Its sad that too much of the novel deals whith her rather dull sister.
This is a well written adventure tale. The book is ten times better than the movie.
Publishers Weekly, 2002-11-04 Newly abridged by Timothy Meis, James Fenimore Cooper's The Last of the Mohicans comes to life under the paintbrush of N.C. Wyeth, with illustrations originally published in 1919. The artist offers readers a close-up view of the French and Indian War, in paintings such as British colonel Duncan's struggle against a Huron warrior or the Mohican Chingachgook similarly fighting off another Huron warrior in the clearing of a wood. Wyeth's paintings also accompany Meis's adaptation of Daniel DeFoe's Robinson Crusoe, due out in February. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
