At sunset, Hetty is buried near the place in Glimmerglass where her mother and Tom Hutter were  laid to rest. Judith makes one last effort to win Deerslayer's love, but he confesses that he does not  want to settle down, which marriage would demand. She even tempts him with descriptions of a  serene, isolated life at Glimmerglass where they would not be in contact with the settlements he  abhors. Finally, Judith asks Deerslayer if the gossip he heard from Hurry Harry had initially  prejudiced him against her. Deerslayer's face betrays him; Judith's fears are confirmed. Judith  accompanies Captain Warley and the soldiers as they head back to the settlement; Deerslayer,  Chingachgook, and Hist set out in the direction of the Delaware territory. Fifteen years pass before Deerslayer and Chingachgook see Glimmerglass again. Hist has died, but  her son, Uncas, joins his father and Deerslayer on the trail to the garrison on the Mohawk.
