Natty Bumppo goes by many names: La Longue Carabine, Hawk-Eye, and Leatherstocking - and in this tale - The Pathfinder. He's a guide, scout, hunter, and when push comes to shove, a soldier. He also fills a lot of roles in pre-Revolution upstate New York.
An old friend, Sergeant Dunham of the 55th Regiment of Foot, asks Natty to guide his daughter through the wilderness to the fort at Oswego. With the French engaging native Indian allies against the British and the Yankee colonists, such a journey is far from safe.
Dunham has a plan in mind to see his daughter Mable married off to the most redoubtable frontiersman and marksman in the territory. But as an attractive and marriageable young lady, she draws other suitors.
Then a military expedition puts Sgt. Dunham, Mable, Pathfinder, and two others, into an isolated and dangerous garrison. Here treachery raises the stakes, and with the soldiers of the detachment shot down or captured, they must show courage if any of them want to escape with their scalps.
