Excerpt from The Last of the Mohicans: A Narrative of 1757

The choice of T/ze Last of Me. Mo/zimm, as one of the series of readings suggested for use in secondary schools, commends itself as peculiarly felicitous. It would not be easy to name a work of fiction that to the youthful reader may more happily serve to afford a simple insight into the real motive and technique of true fiction. By easy effort the method and scope of the story may be fully grasped; the grouping of incident, in the sequence of time and place, may be followed with increasing zest, and the development of character readily traced and understood. With this three fold end in View, the introduction and notes have been carefully shaped to aid the pupil, in the reading of the volume, to the acquisition of a useful knowledge of the rudiments of interpretation in this department of literary art - the only worthy form of enjoyment and culture that it can yield. The material historical, ethnical, personal, and scenic that the author presents as an aid in the same direction for its simplicity and af?uence is simply wonderful, and throughout appeals directly to the sympathy and curiosity of the inquiring pupil. Literally he will find before him in these a feast of good things.
