He then sailed before the mast as a merchant seaman and as a midshipman in the U.S. Navy, experiences that led to his successful sea novels, such as "The Pilot" (1823). The Leatherstocking Tales were published from 1823 to 1841. Arranged according to the chronology of their hero, Natty Bumppo, who appears under various names in all five romances, the sequence is "The Deerslayer," " The Last of the Mohicans," " The Pathfinder," " The Pioneers," " "and "The Prairie."
