Sintesi dell'editore

Twelve-year-old Mary Jemison took for granted her peaceful days on her family's farm in eastern Pennsylvania. But on a spring day in 1758, something happened that changed her life forever.

When a band of warriors invades the Jemisons' house and takes the family captive, Mary is separated from her parents and siblings. She travels with the Indians to southern Ohio and later to a Seneca village on the Genesee River in what is now western New York. Mary's new life is not easy. She misses her family terribly and is unaccustomed to Seneca ways. But even after her several unsuccessful attempts to run away, the Indians are kind to Mary and teach her many things about the earth, its plants, and its creatures. She develops deep bonds with the animals and even her captors. When Mary is finally given the chance to return to the world of white men, she struggles with her newfound feelings.

Based on a true story, this is the unforgettable tale of the legendary "White Woman of the Genesee."

Good story, but lacks energy and suspense

This is a good story, but lacks the energy and suspense I was hoping for. would be great for preteens and young teenagers. Overall, the narrator is what kept me plodding through it. The narrator did an AMAZING job and I would certainly listen to this narrator again!!

Wonderful!

I've read this book about 3 times in paper back form and just got the audio version so I could work on things and still have a book. I love that the narrator changed her voice for characters and it made the book all the greater!

Very heartwarming

I thought the story was very good. It also educated me about the Indians. I was surprised how kind the Indians were to her. It was very interesting learning about some Indian customs, some bad and some good. I really enjoyed this bookl. I’m sure my husband would enjoy it too.

Disappointing

If I was in the 6th grade and needed to read a book for a book report this would be a good one. I wish I had returned it.

Unlistenable

If you want to spend eight hours listening to a grown women trying to talk/think with the high-pitched voice of a six year old, then this is the book for you.

Wow

As I listened to the story of Mary Jemison, it felt as though I was a captive myself. The details and narration make this story very real. Well done. I wished that it told more of her adult life. I’m sure her first years as captive were the most difficult and had the greatest impact on her adult life though. Very good read if you’re ready to experience the fierce emotions that will follow.

A window into 18th century colonial frontier

A fantastic view of the hardships of American colonial frontier life during the F&I war. Great points of view and detailed descriptions of eastern woodland native life and material culture. The fact that its based on a true story makes it even cooler.

Indian Captive

I enjoyed this audio book. I really let me have a glimpse into native Americans. Not all captives were slaves. Adapting to a new life was hard, but many did and thrived. It also is reality into lives taken by the native Americans. Life can be cruel.
