"It takes a rare individual not only to see that history can live, but also to make it live for others. James Thom has that gift."-- The Indianapolis News

Mary Ingles was twenty-three, happily married, and pregnant with her third child when Shawnee Indians invaded her peaceful Virginia settlement in 1755 and kidnapped her, leaving behind a bloody massacre. For months they held her captive. But nothing could imprison her spirit.

With the rushing Ohio River as her guide, Mary Ingles walked one thousand miles through an untamed wilderness no white woman had ever seen. Her story lives on--extraordinary testimony to the indomitable strength of one pioneer woman who risked her life to return to her own people.

This is an awesome book, main character is a super-strong female character who is very inspirational. Historically very interesting from both First American and settlers point of view.
Highly recommend.
