ABOUT THIS BOOK
In The Prairie (1827), Cooper's most celebrated literary work, Natty Bumppo, now aged, is reduced to making a living by trapping. As his journey from Atlantic to Pacific nears its end in a vast uninhabited grassland that Cooper consistently imagines as an ocean of the interior, nothing less than the future identity of America is at stake.
