Many know the name Uncas only from James Fenimore Cooper's The Last of the Mohicans, but the historical Uncas flourished as an important leader of the Mohegan people in seventeenth-century Connecticut. In Uncas: First of the Mohegans, Michael Leroy Oberg integrates the life story of an important Native American sachem into the broader story of European settlement in America. The arrival of the English in Connecticut in the 1630s upset the established balance among the region's native groups and brought rapid economic and social change. Oberg argues that Uncas's methodical and sustained strategies for adapting to these changes made him the most influential Native American leader in colonial New England.Emerging from the damage wrought by epidemic disease and English violence, Uncas transformed the Mohegans from a small community along the banks of the Thames River in Connecticut into a regional power in southern New England. Uncas learned quickly how to negotiate between cultures in the conflicts that developed as natives and newcomers, Indians and English, maneuvered for access to and control of frontier resources. With English assistance, Uncas survived numerous assaults and plots hatched by his native rivals.Unique among Indian leaders in early America, Uncas maintained his power over large numbers of tributary and other native communities in the region, lived a long life, and died a peaceful death (without converting to Christianity) in his people's traditional homeland. Oberg finds that although the colonists considered Uncas "a friend to the English," he was first and foremost an assertive guardian of Mohegan interests.

Uncas Metcalfe is a sixty-five-year-old botany professor from a once prosperous central New York town, whose habitat is changing much too quickly: his wife is ill, his daughter has returned home, and an unusual new friendship unexpectedly stirs up memories of an almost forgotten infidelity. Uncas is rooted in a life of plants and manners. When his routine is upended by the menacing demands of a former student, Uncas finds his comfortably obstinate nature at odds with his family's growing impatience and a newfound, terrifying uncertainty. The Natural History of Uncas Metcalfe follows an unforgettable hero as he struggles to right himself and adapt to changing expectations, even as he approaches the end of his life. Beautifully wrought and wonderfully imagined, the intricacies of the Metcalfe family will linger in your imagination long after the last page.

James Fenimore Coopers Werk markiert den Beginn der Indianerliteratur des 19. Jahrhunderts. In seinen Indianerromanen stellt Cooper die Beziehung der Angloamerikaner zu den Indianern dar und entwirft darüber hinaus ein Bild des Indianers, das am Nachhaltigsten die Vorstellung vom typischen Indianer in der Literatur geprägt hat. Hierbei ist Cooper einerseits der europäischen Aufklärung verpflichtet, die den noble savage "erfand". Andererseits greift Cooper auch das puritanische Feindbild des Indianers, den satanic savage, auf. Im Ganzen präsentiert Cooper ein stereotypisierendes Bild des Indianers, indem er ihn unter die simple Dichotomie des "guten" und des "bösen" Indianers subsumiert. Dennoch problematisiert Cooper bestimmte Klischees des Fremden, indem er einzelne Indianer individualisiert. Hierbei wird zunächst auf die Traditionen und Quellen eingegangen, denen Coopers Indianerdarstellung verpflichtet ist. Das Buch richtet sich vor allem an Studierende und Mitarbeiter im Fachbereich Amerikanistik sowie an alle Interessierten auf dem Gebiet der Indianerliteratur.
