Reviews - What do our customers think?
An interesting book!  Apr 9, 2008
I bought this book for my 11 year old daughter who enjoys biographies, especially about women and girls. I actually ended up reading the book before she did, and I was pleasantly surprised at how much *I* enjoyed it. It gives a realistic view of Mary's life after being kidnapped by indians, and her physical, mental, and emotional struggles over losing her family and having to adapt to a new way of life. It's a great book, and I recommend it for any pre-teen, but especially for young girls who enjoy reading true stories about girls close to their own ages.
Not so normal  Jan 14, 2008
If you like books about young girls who get captured then Indian Captive is the book for you by Lois Lenski! Mary Jemison and her family are captured by the Seneca Indians in Eastern Pennsylvania. The Seneca's take them far away from their homeland to many different places. She is separated from her family with only her little brother and another captive. Many things will happen! Will she see her family ever again? Will she learn to accept what happened? What will happen? I would recommend this book to my peers because it is full of excitement! We give it 5 stars because it has a lot of adventure!
written by Tiffani,Katheren,and Katrina
Fantastic!  Jan 24, 2007
Indian Captive was probly one of THE best books I have ever read. The story line was great and had many supporting details. As a summary the book is about a girl who's family gets attacked by Indians and she was kept as a captive. Molly has to learn the way of the indians. Sometimes she got so homesick, She even attempted to run away. She made a hard decision in the near end. The big question of who will she choose to live with?
So read the book! It has so much more to it.
I promise to you that you will find this book amazing. I give it a positive 100%. SO what are you waiting for hurry and read it!

At the village, Mary got a new name of Corn tassel and was called Corn tassel because of her blond hair. She was miserable so she tried to runaway. She makes new friends and starts to enjoy living with Indian. She is offered a chance to go back with her family, but she can't leave her new family behind. Will she ever see her family again, or will she stay with the Indians? Read the book and find out.
We give this book *** [3] and a half stars, because interesting and exciting. We recommend this book to our friends.
