"1757 - the Hudson River, North America. The armies of France and England are fighting. And Indian tribes are fighting for each army. Hurons are with the French. Mohawks and Mohicans are with the English. The daughters of the English general, Munro, start a journey through the forest. But soon they are in danger. This is the story of the scout, Hawk-eye, and his two Indian friends - the last of the Mohicans." --back cover.
