The person of this individual was to the last degree ungainly, without being in any particular manner deformed. Erect, his stature surpassed that of his fellows; seated, he appeared reduced within the ordinary limits of the race. He had all the bones and joints of other men, without any of their proportions.

There are many editions of The Last of the Mohicans. This educational edition was created for self-improvement or in preparation for advanced examinations. The bottom of each page is annotated with a mini-thesaurus of uncommon words highlighted in the text, including synonyms and antonyms. Designed for school districts, educators, and students seeking to maximize performance on standardized tests, Webster?s paperbacks take advantage of the fact that classics are frequently assigned readings. A running thesaurus at the bottom of each page is useful to students who are actively building their vocabularies in anticipation of taking PSAT®, SAT®, AP® (Advanced Placement®), GRE®, LSAT®, GMAT® or similar examinations. This edition exposes the reader to a maximum number of ?difficult, and often encountered? words in examinations. Rather than supply a single synonym, many are provided for a variety of meanings, allowing readers to better grasp the ambiguity of the English language, and avoid using the notes as a pure crutch. Having the reader decipher a word?s meaning within context serves to improve vocabulary retention and understanding. Each page covers words not already highlighted on previous pages.

I first read Cooper's novel in high school and found it exceedingly difficult to get through, but since I was obsessed with the Daniel Day-Lewis movie version that had just come out in theatres, I wanted to give the book a try. Granted, this is by no means a modern novel. As a literary form, the novel was still in its infancy when Cooper wrote his book. Now coming back to it years later, I can better appreciate how much the narrative does achieve. It's a great adventure story at heart, but also a story that looks at the gaps between cultures and how various people manage. For its time, Cooper's book achieved quite a lot and set a higher standard for novels that followed.

Beautiful copy of a gorgeous book. To refute one reviewer, this book was not about pioneer women who moved with their family, most of whom were actually very reluctant to do so. This was about two young women who were daughters of a high-ranking officer in the army. They were sent to find their father. As such, they did not have a home in which they could hide. One of the women, at least, was quite brave. And both women were extremely well respected, just as they should have been. As to the veracity of the Mohicans and the inconsistency of the Colonel's character, this is a fictional story and like all of our lives, it is not perfect. And to those of you who say the reading is too difficult, what's wrong with challenging your brain? It's rewarding to manage reading and understanding a difficult book.

The first couple of times I started reading this book I could not get past the first few pages. I did not give up on it. The next time I had nothing else to read, but I approached it differently.

I skipped the first 50 or so pages and tried again. The story gripped me and I kept going. When I had decided it was a keeper, I went back to page one and started over to catch what I had missed.

When I caught up to what I had already read I just skimmed through to where I had left off, then breezed through to the end, captivated.

This was in summer. I read it again the next four summers. When it came up as a Kindle read read, I had to have it. Need I say more?

So this is a classic. I really enjoyed it. But be very careful which book you get. I picked up this .99 cent version. It was horrible. It said it was unabridged. Great! 700+ pages. Great. But 1. It was illustrated with random pictures that did not relate to the story, were hard to see, and graphically inappropriate. 2. It had no chapters! Really come on. Someone just copied and pasted the text onto their version and made some bombastic claim that they have the unabridged version. 3. I am not sure that it was ordered all correctly. I could not follow the book. So I ran over to the local library and picked up a paper copy and totally enjoyed it. I could not put it down. It made sense.

For parents out there. There is graphic violence. The use of the English language is great. I really enjoyed hearing about the time period and I am interested in learning more about the French and Indian War. Overall, I would give it a four out of five stars and just caution you to be careful what version you get.

UPDATED 11/02/15: My review and recommendation originally pertained specifically to the Douglas ebook edition, which is sadly no longer available. Happily, this Jame-Books edition has since arrived to take its place, and I would now just as enthusiastically recommend that particular ebook edition (though my remarks about the tales themselves obviously pertain to ANY edition of them).

Good and complete, pleasantly formatted, and by James Fenimore Cooper (the "Homer of America"), this Jame-Books edition is truly bargain-priced; paperback editions for each title alone would cost many times more. And for some reason, while public domain freebies are available in the Kindle store for four of these five titles, this has not been the case for "The Pioneers." Since purchasing that title alone would cost at least a dollar, it only makes sense to get all five -- the complete series -- for the same price. Overall, this is a worthy addition to one's Kindle library.

As you read the books, it is best NOT do so either haphazardly or in the order in which they were published, but in the order of Natty Bumppo's aging from tenderfoot to expert woodsman to old man; this is easily done by reading them in alphabetical order (as arranged in the active TOC):
"Deerslayer"
"Last of the Mohicans"
"Pathfinder"
"Pioneers"
"Prairie"

Admittedly, Cooper might initially seem a bit loquacious to some modern readers used to lighter fare, but if you give him a chance and allow yourself to become comfortable with his leisurely-paced style of story-telling, both the dialogue and vivid descriptions will slowly make you feel as if you've been transported back to an earlier era, not merely as an observer but as a participant in a life-or-death drama in which the sense of danger and foreboding is palpable. Many a time I have raced alongside Natty Bumppo (as Deerslayer or Hawkeye or Leatherstocking or Long Rifle) through fields and forests, across rivers and over mountain paths, as together we sought to elude brutal enemies close on our heels. Cooper does, indeed, make that early period of America's history come vividly alive, and I never tire of reading and re-reading these tales. Even his less-lively "The Pioneers" overcomes any lack of action or adventure by exuding a quaint charm and elegaic quality as it explores a frontier lifestyle being influenced by the passage of time, the encroach of civilization, and the march of progress; this is an inevitable evolution from which not even protagonist Natty Bumppo is exempt, as the unbridled freedoms he once enjoyed in the wilderness become regulated by the rule of law, and he must either adapt and submit or seek new horizons.

Readers who particularly enjoy these 5 -- rather than Cooper's numerous sea tales and novels of social criticism ("The Pioneers" excepted) -- may also wish to download public domain freebies of "Oak Openings," "Wyandotte" and "The Wept of Wish-Ton-Wish." They possess the same tone and create the same "feeling." Those 3 and the 5 "Leatherstocking Tales" books are my all-time JFC favorites. You may also wish to read "The Littlepage Manuscripts" (consisting of "Satanstoe," "The Chainbearer," and "The Redskins"), though that series is not (to me) quite as magical. I sincerely hope you enjoy all these books as much as I have.

Always wanted to read something by James Fenimore Cooper. Finally did. I give it 5 stars. Exciting story, keeping you interested and intrigued as to the plot, totally readable prose. Interesting that many "memes" or "tropes" of "Indians" were here in a book written in 1823: from "Happy Hunting Ground" to Cooper commenting that we call going in single file "Indian file" to (no way around it) whole explanations about scalping and the malice, evil of the "red man." All in all, I believe that there is good reason for this specific novel to be "a classic" and to be a worthwhile view of America that was written almost 200 years ago about a time almost 250 years ago.
