Magua and Cora walked into the forest. They walked towards
the Hurons' village. An hour later, Hawk-eye, Duncan and Uncas
followed Magua's trail. Two hundred young Delawares went with
the three friends. Alice stayed in the Delawares' village.
Hawk-eye spoke to Uncas.
'Major Heyward and I will find Chingachgook and General Munro,'
he said. 'They are safe in the forest. Uncas, take the Delawares
with you. Follow Magua's trail. Be careful! There will be
many Hurons in the forest. We will meet you at the Hurons'
'Magua will take Cora to the cave in the hill,' said Hawk-eye.
'We will find her! We will help her!'
'Come,' said Duncan.
Hawk-eye and Duncan soon found Chingachgook and Munro. They
quickly told Munro their story. Then the four men went to
the Hurons' village. They walked up the hill towards the cave.
Suddenly, they heard shouts and cries. They looked down at
the village. Uncas and the Delawares were fighting the Hurons
in the village. Then Magua and some Hurons ran up the hill.
They were going to the cave. Uncas was running after them.
Hawk-eye and his friends fought the Hurons. The fight was
terrible, but Magua escaped. Then Hawk-eye, Duncan, Munro,
the Mohicans and their friends saw Magua again. He was with
another Huron. They were in front of the cave. The two Indians
were pulling Cora from the cave.
'Cora!' shouted Duncan. 'There is Cora!'
Uncas ran towards the rocks above the cave. Cora had stopped
in front of the cave. Magua took out his knife. He turned
'Woman!' he shouted. 'Will you be the wife of Magua? Or will
'Kill me, Magua!' Cora said. 'I will not go with you!'
Suddenly there was a cry. Uncas was standing on the rocks
above them. Magua looked up. The other Huron turned to Cora.
He stabbed her with his knife and killed her. Magua shouted
He lifted his knife and killed the Huron. Then Uncas jumped
on Magua. They fought. But Magua turned quickly. He stabbed
Uncas four times. The young Mohican stood for a moment. Then
he fell at Magua's feet ... dead. Hawk-eye saw Uncas fall.
The scout ran towards Magua. Magua ran up the path. His enemies
were below him. Magua climbed up the rocks. Then he turned
and looked down. Hawk-eye stopped running. He lifted his long
gun. Magua jumped towards a higher rock and Hawk-eye fired.
Magua's fingers touched the rock. But the bullet from Hawk-eye's
gun killed him. And his body fell down and down onto the rocks.
A day later, General Munro, Duncan and Alice stood by the
graves of Uncas and Cora. They were sad and silent. Then they
said goodbye to Hawk-eye, Chingachgook, and the Delawares.
And they walked away into the forest. Chingachgook looked
'All the people of my tribe have gone now,' he said. 'I am
'No,' said Hawk-eye. 'Uncas has gone. But you are not alone.'
He put his hand on Chingachgook's hand.
The tears of the two friends fell onto the grave of Uncas.
In 1758, General Munro died. Alice married Duncan Heyward
and they lived happily together. From that time, the Delawares
told their children the story of the English woman and the
Mohican. And they told their children the words of Tamenund,
the old chief ...
'The time of the red man has gone. We fought for our land.
But now there are many white men ... as many as the leaves
on the trees. I have lived too long. I have seen the last
of the Mohicans!'
