The Last of the Mohicans, The
Age of Innocence, In the Name of the Father and The Crucible were also successful.
The programme so far will include film music from The Pirates of the Caribbean and The Last of the Mohicans, the
march Punchinello, music from the big band era with In the Mood, the Kingdom Triumphant, Blaydon Races, All in the April Evening and The March from the Pines of Rome.
I have read Cooper's Last of the Mohicans, The
Spy, The Pilot, and The Pioneers.
Britain's empire, too, has been blasted in revolutionary epics like The Last of the Mohicans, The
Patriot, and Gandhi, while China's empire has been reviled in The Last Emperor and Seven Years in Tibet.
In the film The Last of the Mohicans, the
hero was called the Pathfinder.
James Fenimore Cooper's (1789-1851) fame rests primarily on the five "Leatherstocking Tales" (The Pioneers, Last of the Mohicans, The
Prairie, The Pathfinder, The Deerslayer), stories of adventure set in the American frontier and featuring Natty Bumppo, also known as Hawkeye and Deerslayer--a simple, homely man, possessed of great bravery, skill and integrity.
