Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Slocum family of Northeastern Pennsylvania are the best of the white settlers, peace-loving Quakers who believe that the Indians hold the Light of God inside. It is from this good-hearted family that Frances is abducted during the Revolutionary war.

As the child's terror subsides, she is slowly drawn into the sacred work and beliefs of her adoptive mother and of all the women of these Eastern tribes. Frances becomes Maconakwa, the Little Bear Woman of the Miami Indians. Then, long after the Indians are beaten and their last hope, Tecumseh, is killed, the Slocums hear word of their long-lost daughter and head out to Indiana to meet their beloved Frances. But for Maconakwa, it is a moment of truth, the test of whether her heart is truly a red one.

Synopsis:

Abducted during the Revolutionary War by the Lenape, five-year-old Frances Slocum is transformed into Maconakwa, the Little Bear Woman of the Miami Indians, and grows up among her adoptive tribe, in a historical novel based on the real-life experiences of Frances Slocum. Reprint.
