It is 1757, and the British are fighting the French in North America. The two young daughters of a British colonel are trying to reach their father safely. But there are Indians in the woods. Some are friendly; some are hostile. What kind of man is the last of the Mohicans? This is a classic American adventure story.
Gr 3-5-A bare-bones adaptation of the classic novel. The simplified text is action packed, but the dialogue is stilted and the descriptive passages are uninspired. However, these flaws will not deter students looking for frontier adventure or a book about the movie (about the book). Several large pencil illustrations are included, but no map accompanies the historical note. Not a necessary purchase, but it may hook reluctant readers.-Gale W.
