Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Early one morning in the year 1754 the stillness of Charlestown, New Hampshire, was shattered by shrill war whoops and the terror of an Indian raid. Young Miriam Willard, on a day which had promised new happiness, found herself instead a captive on a forest trail, caught up in the ebb and flow of the French and Indian War.

It was a horrowing march north. Miriam could only force herself to the next stopping place, the next small portion of food, the next icy stream to be crossed. What waits at the end of the trail--besides an Indian quantlet and a life of slavery?

I love this book! It is a wonderful read for anyone of any age. I first read this book when I was 8, and have read it many times since, and am still reading it. It is a wonderful story that never gets old. I recommend this book to all readers.
