The Last of the Mohicans

Truly the last of the Mohican warriors, as he is the only son of Chingachgook, Uncas is devoted to his father and to Hawkeye, and fights with great valor against the Mingos and the French. Uncas dies in pursuit of Magua, at the end of the novel, and is not able to carry Cora safely back to her father, Colonel Munro. But Uncas is celebrated by the Delawares (of whom the Mohicans are a sub-tribe) as a great and powerful warrior, who will be treated as such in the “hunting grounds” of the afterlife.
