These successes encouraged Cooper to mine the rich vein he had initially exploited. He quickly  published  Lionel Lincoln  (1825), which deals with the Battle of Bunker Hill and the beginnings of the  American Revolution, and  The Last of the Mohicans  (1826), which returns to the adventures of Natty  Bumppo during the French and Indian Wars.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
