The Pathfinder: Or the Inland Sea
Oxford University Press, 1999 - Počet stran: 484
The Pathfinder (1840), Cooper's most picturesque novel and the fourth of the five Leatherstocking Tales, is a naval story set on the Great Lakes of the 1750s. Fashioned from Cooper's own experience as a midshipman on Lake Ontario in 1808-09, the novel revives Natty Bumpo (who had died in The
Prairie), and illuminates Cooper's interest in American history with his concern for social development.
