Deerslayer

The hero of a novel so called, by F. Cooper. He is the beauideal of a man without cultivation—honourable in sentiment, truthful, and brave as a lion; pure of heart, and without reproach in conduct. The character appears, under different names, in five novels—The Deerslayer, The Pathfinder, The Last of the Moʹhicans, The Pioneers, and The Prairie. (See Natty Bumpo.)
