Product Description

Twelve-year old Mary Jemison lives on the border of eastern Pennsylvania in 1758--hardly a safe and quiet place to live. Captured by Seneca tribesmen, Mary was separated from her family, traveling to western New York. Initially missing her family, she soon learns many new things about the earth, its plants, creatures and more...so much so that she starts to enjoy living life as a sister to the Indians. When a chance comes to return to English civilization, will she want to leave them? 298 pages, softcover.
