Subject: You're kidding! I remember doing a book report on this book when I was taking AP History my junior year of high school! I haven't thought about it in years. But I it was a very interesting story. I wonder if my local library still has it.

[> I read a fictional account of this sort of occurence, where again the daughter refuses to to back to the settler's life. The love, freedom and acceptance found among her adopted tribe so overwhelmed her colorless, emotionless dreary "female" strictly proscribed religious life that she wouldn't countenance a return "home." It must have been the same in your book. -- beccabee, 11:57:53 04/29/06 Sat

[> [> There are a number of tales of girls staying with the tribes that adopted them and refusing to return to their white families. Frances Slocum's story was made into a novel, "The Red Heart" by James Alexander Thom and I remember reading a children's book called "Indian Captive" about Mary Jemison. -- Lynn H., 10:12:31 05/01/06 Mon
