The Leatherstocking Tales is a series of five novels featuring the main hero Natty Bumppo, known by European settlers as "Leatherstocking" and "The Pathfinder", and by the Native Americans as "Deerslayer" and "Hawkeye". Natty Bumppo is a resourceful Anglo-American woodsman raised in part by Native Americans, who later becomes a fearless warrior skilled in many weapons, chiefly the long rifle. His constant companion is his "brother" Chingachgook, Mohican chief, who happens to be the actual last of the Mohicans. The stories take place on the rapidly advancing frontier of New York State and focus on the evolution of the wilderness into a civilized European-American community.
