It is 1757 and the Seven Years' War, waged between the British and French colonies, has torn across western New York. Colonel Munro, who holds charge of the British Fort William Henry, believes he is sending his daughters away from danger with a Native American escort named Magua. But when Magua abducts the girls, Natty Bumppo, also known as Hawkeye, and his Mohican companions, Uncas and Chingachook, witness the cowardly act and set out rescue the two Munro sisters.
James Fenimore Cooper's The Last of the Mohicans remains a highly regarded historical account of colonization in the Americas and the effects of European migration on the indigenous population. While commonly studied in the classroom, Cooper's work has also been adapted for the stage, opera, and film, most famously in the 1992 film starring Daniel Day-Lewis.
