A classic captivity narrative, this "true narrative of well-authenticated facts-somewhat enlarged and embellished" is the story of Regina. Her father and siblings murdered, only her mother and a brother survived; taken north, she lived among the Indians for nine years, forgetting her German and taking on Indian ways. The story of her eventual homecoming and family reunion provide a tableau for the moral admonitions of the Lutheran Church. Reprinted from the original manuscript, some strongly offensive language and prejudices against the Indians are retained. 252 pages, softcover.

When the frontier village of Deerfield, Massachusetts was attacked by a party of French and Indians near dawn on February 29, 1704, the Reverend John Williams, his family, and his entire congregation suffered greatly. Forty-nine were killed, among them William's wife and two of their children. One hundred eleven were taken off as captives to Canada, including Williams and five of his surviving children. In The Redeemed Captive, Williams recorded with Christian resignation the terror and trauma of the raid, the long march through the snow and ice, and his years of captivity among the French. His account of the enemy invading his sleeping household and the ensuing ordeal still speaks of the travails of frontier life and of the New England Puritan character that enabled Williams and his flock to withstand these hardships and to return to Deerfield to rebuild the burned and sacked community.

The long days on the trail were filled with excitement for adventurous Carrie Talbot. And at the end of the trail waited more adventure- she was going to start a brand new life at the Indian mission established by her uncle. Then a sudden encounter with an Indian raiding party left Carrie with more excitement than she wanted. As she rode off helplessly with her captors, frantic thoughts raced through Carrie's mind. Why was one of the Indians so interested in the family Bible she had managed to save? How could she escape? Even if she did, how could she ever find the wagon train again? The raiding party took Carrie deep into the wilderness to a Cheyenne camp on the banks of a distant river. There Carrie met the Indian called the Keeper and began a life far different from any she had ever imagined.
