Inhalt

Chingachgook

North America in the year 1740: The colonial war between England and France badly affects the Indian tribes on the continent. Thus, the French set up the Huron tribe against the Delaware tribe to kidnap Wahtawah, the daughter of the chief of the Delaware tribe. Mohican Chingachgook, who is supposed to marry Wahtawah, wants to free his lover together with his friend Deerslayer. But on their way to the Huron camp, they encounter a group of scalp hunters. Chingachgook is captured by the Hurons and fails to convince the tribe of the disingenuousness of both war parties. It is not until British troops, who were called in by the scalp hunters, utterly defeat the Huron tribe, that the badly wounded Huron chief is made to see reason. The Indians realize that the war of the white men is not their conflict and thus conclude peace. Together with Wahtawah and Deerslayer, Chingachgook returns to the Delaware tribe.
