Description by OLDIES.com:

Based on the classic writings of James Fenimore Cooper, this exciting frontier adventure series vividly captured the daring exploits of Hawkeye, "first of the long rifles," and his faithful blood brother Chingachgook, last of the Mohicans. Set in New York's Hudson Valley of the 1750s, the series was filmed almost entirely in Canada from 1957 to 1958 utilizing authentic outdoor settings and carefully observed period detail. Athletic and handsome John Hart, famous for playing the title role in Jack Armstrong, The All-American Boy (1947) and numerous action adventure movies, is a natural as Nat 'Hawkeye' Cutler. Lon Chaney, Jr. plays the Chingachgook role with relish, years after he had gained fame for his starring role in Of Mice And Men and the classic Universal movie The Wolf Man.

Episode 1 - The Search: Hawkeye and Chingachgook rescue an elderly woman from the clutches of two Indians. She enlists their help in finding her son who was abducted 18 years ago by the same tribe.

Episode 2 - The Delaware Hoax: The Delaware, an Indian tribe with ties to Chingachgook, are framed by white men for murder and robberies they did not commit. Hawkeye sets out to clear the tribe's name.

Episode 3 - False Witness: Army payroll messengers are found murdered, victims of a band of renegade highwaymen. Hawkeye and Chingachgook go undercover, managing the local trading post, to find the culprits.

Episode 4 - Hawkeye's Homecoming: Hawkeye learns that his brother Tommy has become a red coat soldier.When Tommy is killed by a corrupt Indian companion, Hawkeye seeks justice.

Thrilling Episodes Movie Lover: from Syracuse, NY US -- March, 10, 2006

These four episodes are still exciting fare today. Set in New York's frontier during the French and Indian War of the 1750s, the episodes explore an exciting era of America's past too neglected by television and cinema. Although the episodes are very much in the vein of similar "Early American Hero" television staples like Jim Bowie, Davy Crocket, and Daniel Boone, John Hart as Hawkeye is an impressive addition to the catalog. The first episode is included here (filmed in Hollywood) and lists our star as Johnny Hart. I'm hoping the entire series will be issued on DVD!

TV version of James Fenimore Cooper's Classic Movie Lover: from Suburban Philadelphia, PA -- February, 10, 2005

With the exception of the pilot episode, this series was filmed in Canada, in cooperation with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. John Hart
stars as Hawkeye with Lon Chaney, Jr. as Chingachgook. You may think it comical to see Chaney in the role of an Indian, but this
wasn't the first time that he played one . . . remember the public domain staple "Daniel Boone, Trailblazer?" He's actually pretty good in
this series. The show is very much in the vein of Davy Crockett/Jim Bowie/Daniel Boone, so if you like those shows, chances are good that you'll enjoy this series. Alpha has secured some really good looking prints for the 8 episodes included on volumes 1 and 2. They are among Alpha's best looking TV prints and I doubt this series will ever look better than this. There is some scratchy sounding audio on the first episode of Volume 1, however. Volume 1 includes the pilot episode (filmed in Hollywood) and Volume 2 includes an episode with an early appearance by James Doohan of Star Trek fame.
