dc.description.abstract This study examines how the five tales built around the central figure of Natty Bumppo reflect the growth of Cooper's mythic imagination. It also attempts to demonstrate how the myth of Leatherstocking serves to interpret the American experience, and it argues that Cooper's myth is important not merely because of its historical position in the development of American literature but because of its intrinsic literary merits as well. en_US
