James Fenimore Cooper: The Leatherstocking Tales (boxed set)

The Pioneers | The Last of the Mohicans | The Prairie | The Pathfinder | The Deerslayer
Edited by Blake Nevius

“To read Cooper is to be elevated. This is in part because he looked to nature not for self-therapy, as did so many of his contemporaries, but for an emblem of his nation’s future, from which he considered his personal fate to be inextricable. In the fictions that have now taken their proper place in The Library of America, Cooper recorded his own disillusionment with a society where privilege was both universally scorned and universally desired. Yet he always wrote about his country with what Fiedler calls ‘The ferocity of baffled love.’”—Andrew Delbanco, The New Republic
