Ten of the best: green stories in literature

At the Guardian, John Mullan named ten of the best green stories in literature.

One novel on his list:
The Last of the Mohicans by James Fenimore Cooper

Cooper's characters are wooden, but his most famous novel made readers all over Europe thrill to the sublime wilderness of America. Endlessly escaping over vividly described mountains and lakes, braving the white water of unbridged torrents, Hawkeye and the Brits whom he helps are the ancestors of today's trekkers.
Read about all ten stories on Mullan's list.
