About the Author

Hailing from Burlington, New Jersey, James Fenimore Cooper (1789-1851) was one of the most popular American authors of the early nineteenth century. A writer of historical romances about frontier and American Indian life, Cooper was also influenced by his early career as a midshipman in the US Navy. Cooper's works--among them, The Deerslayer, The Pathfinder, and The Last of the Mohicans, considered to be his masterpiece--were popular not only with American audiences, but abroad as well, and were translated into many languages. Cooper died the day before his sixty-second birthday, in Cooperstown, New York, the village founded by his father and where he spent much of his life.
