The Pathfinder (Signet Classics)

James Fenimore Cooper, John Stauffer


The 3rd novel in James Fennimore Cooper’s Leatherstocking stories, starring the heroic Natty Bumppo.
 
lively, self-reliant, amazingly creative, and ethical, Natty Bumppo is the prototype of the Western hero. A perfect arbiter of barren region justice, he hates middle-class hypocrisy. yet he unearths his love divided among the lady he has pledged to guard on a treacherous trip and the untouched wooded area that sustains him in his ideals. A fast paced narrative filled with event and majestic descriptions of early frontier existence, Indian raiders, and defenseless outposts, The Pathfinder set the traditional for epic motion literature.
 
With an advent by means of John Stauffer
And an Afterword by means of Thomas Berger
