THE COMPLETE LEATHERSTOCKING TALES features the five novels of James Fenimore Cooper's beloved Leatherstocking series, which follow the adventures of Natty Bumppo. Set largely on the frontier of New York during the 18th century, Bumppo, who is known as "Leatherstocking" to the European settlers and "Deerslayer" or "Hawkeye" to the Native Americans, is an Anglo-American raised in part by Delaware Indians. Together with his brother and companion Chingachgook, they roam the frontier through a variety of harrowing adventures.<br /><br />sort by historical date<br /><br />• The Deerslayer<br />• The Last of the Mohicans<br />• The Pathfinder<br />• The Pioneers<br />• The Prairie<br /><br />The story dates are derived from dates given in the tales and span the period roughly of 1740–1806. They do not necessarily correspond with the actual dates of the historical events described in the series, which discrepancies Cooper likely introduced for the sake of convenience. For instance, Cooper manipulated time to avoid making Leatherstocking 100 years old when he traveled to the Kansas plains in The Prairie.<br />The Natty Bumppo character is generally believed to have been inspired, at least in part, by the historic explorer Daniel Boone or the lesser known David Shipman. Critic Georg Lukacs likened Bumppo to Sir Walter Scott's "middling characters; because they do not represent the extremes of society, these figures can serve as tools for the social and cultural exploration of historical events, without directly portraying the history itself.( Wiki)

<b>A <i>New York Times</i> bestseller</b><br /><br /><b>The original graphic novel adapted into the film <i>Blue Is the Warmest Color</i>, winner of the Palme d'Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival</b><br /><br />In this tender, bittersweet, full-color graphic novel, a young woman named Clementine discovers herself and the elusive magic of love when she meets a confident blue-haired girl named Emma: a lesbian love story for the ages that bristles with the energy of youth and rebellion and the eternal light of desire.<br /><br />First published in France by Glénat, the book has won several awards, including the Audience Prize at the Angoulême International Comics Festival, Europe's largest.<br /><br />The live-action, French-language film version of the book, entitled <i>Blue Is the Warmest Color</i>, won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2013. Directed by director Abdellatif Kechiche and starring Lea Seydoux and Adele Exarchopoulos, the film generated both wide praise and controversy. It will be released in the US through Sundance Selects/IFC Films.<br /><br /><b>Julie Maroh</b> is an author and illustrator originally from northern France.<br /><br />"Julie Maroh, who was just 19 when she started the comic, manages to convey the excitement, terror, and obsession of young love—and to show how wildly teenagers swing from one extreme emotion to the next ... Ultimately, Blue Is the Warmest Color is a sad story about loss and heartbreak, but while Emma and Clementine’s love lasts, it’s exhilarating and sustaining." —<i>Slate.com</i><br /><br />"A beautiful, moving graphic novel." —<i>Wall Street Journal</i><br /><br />"<i>Blue Is the Warmest Color</i> captures the entire life of a relationship in affecting and honest style." —<i>Comics Worth Reading</i><br /><br />"Delicate linework conveys wordless longing in this graphic novel about a lesbian relationship." —<i>New York Times Book Review</i> <b>(Editor's Choice)</b><br /><br />"A tragic yet beautifully wrought graphic novel." —<i>Salon.com</i><br /><br />"Love is a beautiful punishment in Maroh’s paean to confusion, passion, and discovery ... An elegantly impassioned love story." —<i>Publishers Weekly</i> (STARRED REVIEW)<br /><br />"A lovely and wholehearted coming-out story ... the illustrations are infused with genuine, raw feeling. Wide-eyed Clementine wears every emotion on her sleeve, and teens will understand her journey perfectly." —<i>Kirkus Reviews </i><br /><br />"The electric emotions of falling in love and the difficult process of self-acceptance will resonate with all readers ... Maroh’s use of color is deliberate enough to be eye-catching in a world of grey tones, with Emma’s bright blue hair capturing Clementine’s imagination, but is used sparingly enough that it supports and blends naturally with the story." —<i>Library Journal</i> (STARRED REVIEW)<br /><br />"It's not just the French who have a better handle on sexy material than Americans -- Canadians do, too ... Who's publishing it? Not an American publishing house but by Arsenal Pulp Press, a Canadian independent." —<i>Los Angeles Times</i><br />

<b>Enter once more the world of Roland Deschain—and the world of the Dark Tower...presented in a stunning graphic novel form that will unlock the doorways to terrifying secrets and bold storytelling as part of the dark fantasy masterwork and magnum opus from #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author Stephen King.</b><br /><br />“The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed.” With these unforgettable words, millions of readers were introduced to Stephen King’s iconic character Roland Deschain of Gilead. Roland is the last of his kind, a “gunslinger” charged with protecting whatever goodness and light remains in his world—a world that “moved on,” as they say. In this desolate reality—a dangerous land filled with ancient technology and deadly magic, and yet one that mirrors our own in frightening ways—Roland is on a spellbinding and soul-shattering quest to locate and somehow save the mystical nexus of all worlds, all universes: the Dark Tower.<br /> <br />Now, in the graphic novel series adaptation <i>Stephen King's The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger</i>, originally published by Marvel Comics in single-issue form and creatively overseen by Stephen King himself, the full story of Roland's troubled past and ongoing saga is revealed. Sumptuously drawn by Richard Isanove, Sean Phillips, Luke Ross, and Michael Lark, plotted by longtime Stephen King expert Robin Furth, and scripted by <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author Peter David, The Gunslinger adaptation is an extraordinary and terrifying journey—ultimately serving as the perfect introduction for new readers to Stephen King’s modern literary classic <i>The Dark Tower</i>, while giving longtime fans thrilling adventures transformed from his blockbuster novels.<br /> <br />The barony of Gilead has finally fallen to the forces of the evil John Farson, and the surviving young gunslingers were massacred at the decisive Battle of Jericho Hill. But one has risen from the ashes: Roland Deschain. Now as the last of the gunslingers, Roland sets out in search of the mysterious Dark Tower—the one place where he can set the events of his out-of-sync world right again. Along the way, Roland will battle forces from his worst nightmares as he trails the elusive Man in Black—the inhuman sorcerer who holds the key to Roland’s desperate search.

This third volume in the collection brings us to the very edge of<br /> absolute greatness, with two later, far more mature solo outings –<br /> Doc Doxey’s Elixir (including Manhunt) and Phil Wire (including Lucky<br /> Luke and Pill) were first published in 1955 and 1956, and already<br /> Luke was much closer to the cowboy that we now have in mind –<br /> followed by Rails on the Prairie, the first collaboration between<br /> Morris and Goscinny, that would usher in 30 years of a legendary<br /> collaboration. These stories are prefaced by a staggering 46 pages of<br /> extra material – biographies, essays, interviews, illustrations –<br /> that will delight every fan.
