Synopsis: Catharine Carey Logan is twelve years old, living in a Quaker community in the Delaware Valley of Pennsylvania in 1763. She and her brother Thomas are kidnapped by Lenape Indians, living with them for over a year before being returned to her parents. She wrote a diary during her time with them. This is a faithful reprinting, smoothing out her language to make it easier for modern audiences. This is part of the Dear America Series.
Review: While I own a dozen of this series, this is the first one I've read. It was haunting. This is not a happy book. It is full of anguish, heartbreak, death, confusion, anger and redemption. Catharine comes back a different person and must deal with how the truth she learns doesn't fit into her old world. I highly recommend.
