Quarter black cloth with gilt lettering and green patterned paper over boards, slipcase. xvi, 474pp. Color illustrations. Fine/near fine. Handsome, tight copy of the ninth title in the LEC's thirty-third series, originally published in 1840 and the third of the "Leatherstocking Tales." Printed at the noted Steinhour Press.

Vigorous, self-reliant, amazingly resourceful, and moral, Natty Bumppo is the prototype of the Western hero. A faultless arbiter of wilderness justice, he hates middle-class hypocrisy. But he finds his love divided between the woman he has pledged to protect on a treacherous journey and the untouched forest that sustains him in his beliefs. A fast-paced narrative full of adventure and majestic descriptions of early frontier life, Indian raiders, and defenseless outposts, The Pathfinder set the standard for epic action literature.

I purchased this book [JFC's 'The Pathfinder'] for my wife and she said she thoroughly enjoyed it. In fact, she liked it so much she had me order 'The Prairie'.
