Indian Captive is the true story of Mary Jemison, written by Lois Lenski. It takes place during the French and Indian War. Mary Jemison is taken from from her home and her family is tomahawked. The Indians bring her to a Seneca village called "Seneca Town", where she is adopted into a Seneca family. At first Mary is wary of the Indians, but most of them are very kind to her. After a few years, she is given a chance to return to the whites. But her family is dead, and she has come to think of the Indians as her new family. How can she leave them now?
This is a sad but exciting story of hope and friendship. I think anyone who enjoys stories about Native Americans, or history in general, would love this book as I did.
I give it 8 out of 10 stars.
