BOOK DISCUSSION: The Last of the Mohicans by James Fenimore Cooper

I’m not one for historical-type novels, but I have a gorgeous vintage copy of The Last of the Mohicans–it’s a Classic, I was an English Major in college & I had to read it.

Although the storyline isn’t something I particularly enjoy/enjoyed, there were passages where the language was absolutely beautiful. Not many authors describe the most basic of actions so poetically, so it is always refreshing and peaceful to read Classics in-between my normal reads.

The book as a whole has so much hidden meaning and wisdom in it; James Fenimore Cooper was clearly progressive way beyond his years.

History buffs–read it! Classic-novel lovers–read it!

What are some Classic books you love? “Recommend A Book” to me on Goodreads!
