In an age of twisted news and re-imagined history, it's valuable to read this first-person account of a captive's actual experiences, both tolerable and horrible, among the Plains Indians. Although the author suffered greatly during her captivity, she nevertheless takes time to explain the Indian Wars from the point of view of the Indians themselves, who felt that their lands and hunting grounds were threatened by the white man. This book presents an unadulterated account of an important period of our history. If I were a history teacher, I would recommend it to my students. Since I am not a history teacher, however, I will simply recommend the book to you.
