Praise for the Print Edition
The extraordinary interest excited by the Leather Stocking Tales in all countries, and in all the modern European languages, and in every rank of society, is an irrefragable evidence of profound genius in the author, and matchless skill in creations which touch human sympathies through their fidelity to nature and intense reality.
—The United States Magazine and Democratic Review
[Cooper] is a poet; and if his creations should not be immortal, it will be the work of the perverse and incalculable accidents of time; for multitudes, less worthy, have a niche in the temple of memory.

About James Fenimore Cooper
James Fenimore Cooper (1789–1851) was one of the most popular nineteenth-century novelists, best remembered for his masterpiece, The Last of the Mohicans. Cooper held a lucrative writing career, producing sea stories based on his own time at sea, as well as a popular series of historical novels called the Leatherstocking Tales. He was educated at Yale for three years, but was later expelled for poor behavior. Cooper’s works often reflected his political stance, for which the Whig party press maliciously criticized him. Cooper filed defamation lawsuits against them, and he won every case. His works were admired by Victor Hugo, Honore de Balzac, Henry David Thoreau, and a number of other significant writers throughout the world.
