The five novels in The Leatherstocking Tales (collected in two Library of America volumes), Cooper's great saga of the American wilderness, form a pageant of the American frontier. Cooper's hero, Natty Bumppo, is forced ever farther into the heart of the continent by the advance of civilization that he inadvertently serves as advance scout, missionary, and critic. Leatherstocking first appears in The Pioneers (1823), as an aged hunter living on the fringe of settlement near Templeton (Cooperstown), New York, at the end of the eighteenth century. There he becomes caught in the struggles of party, family, and class to control the changing American land and to determine what sort of civilization will replace the rapidly vanishing wilderness. When Natty Bumppo started an American tradition by setting off into the sunset at the novel's close, one early reader said, "I longed to go with him." The Last of the Mohicans (1826) is a pure unabashed narrative of adventure. It looks back to the earlier time of the French and Indian Wars, when Natty and his two companions, Chingachgook and Uncas, survivors of a once-proud Indian nation, attempt a daring rescue and seek to forestall the plan of the French to unleash their Mingo allies on a wave of terror through the English settlements. The Prairie (1827) takes up Natty in his eighties, driven by the continuous march of civilization to his last refuge on the Great Plains across the Mississippi. On this vast and barren stage, the Sioux and Pawnee, the outlaw clan of Ishmael Bush, and members of the Lewis and Clark expedition enact a romantic drama of intrigue, pursuit, and biblical justice that reflects Cooper's historical dialectic of culture and nature, of the American nation and the American continent.

This is the first book-length study to show how Cooper uses the Leath­erstocking series as a touchstone to ex­plore pre-Civil War America’s perception of its past. Kelly’s historiographic approach to the Tales marks a significant departure from previous critical commentary on the sto­ries: Other critics have centered either on the Tales’ mythological status, on their relevance for an understanding of Jack­sonian America, or on their aesthetic preconceptions. Kelly begins his innova­tive study by challenging the assumption that American writers of the eighteenth century lacked native models for their fiction. He argues that rather than a void, Americans confronted two competing patterns of historical vision. In docu­ments as diverse as John Winthrop’s Jour­nal, the Declaration of Independence, Emerson’s Essays, and Lincoln’s Second Inaugural, America is imagined as simul­taneously free and bound, as a nation at once independent from history and or­ganically linked to centuries of human development. Kelly shows that Cooper’s fiction illustrates this characteristic perception of the past with an unparalleled clarity. Neither a defense of tradition nor an assault on entailment, his novels plot American history as a progressive devel­opment in the continuum of human events and as a departure from that process.
