Summary

The setting for this historical romance is the French and Indian War, a war which pitted England and its American colonists against the French and their Indian allies. Cora and Alice Munro, the daughters of an English commander, are on their way to join their father. Escorting them through the wilderness are Alice's fiancé, Major Duncan Heyward, and the treacherous Indian Magua, who secretly serves the French. Magua's plan to betray the party to the Iroquois is foiled by the scout Hawkeye and his companions, old chief Chingachgook and his son Uncas, the "last of the Mohicans." Through a series of fights and rescues, this trio of loyal friends, who embody a code of manly honor and heroics, defend the virtuous sisters from Magua and his Iroquois thugs.
This timeless tale will enchant readers with its panoramic view of America at its conception.

A great book for those long journeys.

This is definitely a book I could not have read. However, as an audio book it is eminently listenable, although I do have to admit to having zoned out on the odd occasion. The language is very Victorian in tone and, therefore, very flowery – using several words where one might do (by today’s standards). Having said that the story is gripping and the ending somewhat unexpected (I need to watch the film again). The characterisation is wonderful, the settings lavishly described and the plot compelling. If I do have one criticism it was the series of chapters where some of the main characters disguise themselves in the skin of a bear – it was simply too implausible. The narration by Stefan Rudnicki is wonderful, if somewhat soporific at times. This audio book is definitely a recommendation for those long journeys, unless you cannot cope with verbose Victorian-style prose.

Dull narration

Loved the movie, think I liked the book when I read it 30 years ago, however, this was very boring narration, I recommend you look at other versions of this book.
