The Pathfinder - or - The Inward Sea - James Fenimore Cooper

1903 - Macmillan and Co., London
The third in the series of Cooper’s Leatherstocking Tales. Cooper takes his main character, here called the Pathfinder (Natty Bumppo) and examines his role as an explorer for British Colonial forces in the forests and islands around the Great Lakes. The story is a classic historical adventure romance and Bumppo falls in love, for the first and only time in the five novels, only to see his choice fall in love with another man - a younger man and good friend of Natty's. Probably the best of the five novels. [Whiting].

With illustrations by C.E. Brock.
