The Deerslayer, or The First War-Path (1841) was James Fenimore Cooper's last novel in his Leatherstocking Tales. Its 1740-1745 time period makes it the first installment chronologically and in the lifetime of the hero of the Leatherstocking tales, Natty Bumppo. The novel's setting on Otsego Lake in central, upstate New York, is the same as that of The Pioneers, the first of the Leatherstocking Tales to be published (1823). The Deerslayer is considered to be the prequel to the rest of the series. Fenimore Cooper begins his work by relating the astonishing advance of civilization in New York State, which is the setting of four of his five Leatherstocking Tales.
Two illustrated versions are in the public domain, one by N.C. Wyeth (1925) and Michał Elwiro Andriolli (1897). However we were unable to find a good scan of either version. Please let us know if you have access to these. Other versions of this audiobook, as well as other audiobooks by James Fenimore Cooper in this series, can be found on Librivox: Leatherstocking Tales
