Аннотация к книге «The Deerslayer»
One of the greatest heroes in American literature, Natty Bumppo is the rugged frontiersman of James Fenimore Cooper's Leatherstocking Tales.
A restless white youth raised by Indians, Natty Bumppo is called Deerslayer for the daring that sets him apart from his peers.
But he has yet to meet the test of the human conflict. In a tale of violent action and superbly sustained suspense, the harsh realities of tribal warfare. Still yet another kind of initiation awaits him when he discovers not only the ruthlessness of "civilized" men, but also the special danger of a woman's will. His reckless spirit, transformed into a mature courage and moral certainty, the Deerslayer emerges to face life with nobility as pure and proud as the wilderness.
