In 1841, James Fenimore Cooper’s book The Deerslayer was published, but that book was written about the period between the 1740s and the 1750s. The Deerslayer is an example of Historical Fiction. The Deerslayer was the final of Cooper’s five books that comprise The Leatherstocking Tales, but it represents the earliest part of that history.
