Set on the Great Plains during the time of the Lewis and Clark Expedition to the Pacific coast, The Prairie is the third of James Fenimore Cooper's novels to feature Natty Bumppo, the famous Hawkeye. Now in his eighties, Bumppo has left New York for the untouched expanses of the frontier. There he encounters the wagon train of Ishmael Bush and his family. Bush is very soon in trouble with the Teton Sioux (Lakota), and Bumppo endeavours to help.
As the last of the author's Leatherstocking Tales, the novel finds the hero of The Last of the Mohicans at the end of life, seeking to evade civilization as it creeps toward his beloved, and vast, wilderness. Nostalgic in tone, The Prairie is an examination of the great migration that took place following the Louisiana Purchase and the opening of the American west.
