Cooper's second novel, issued in 1821, was an immediate great hit and was an important milestone in the budding field of American fiction. James Fenimore Cooper ( 1789-1851) was one of the most popular American novelists of the nineteenth century. Henry C. Pitz (1895-1976) was an outstanding illustrator, especially in pen and ink.
