Mary Ingles was twenty-three, married, and pregnant, when Shawnee Indians invaded her peaceful Virginia settlement, killed the men and women, then took her captive. For months, she lived with them, unbroken, until she escaped, and followed a thousand mile trail to freedom--an extraordinary story of a pioneer woman who risked her life to return to her 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.
