Captive. Captivating.

As a parent/grandparent, I can only imagine the horror of losing a child in this way. Kidnapped by Indians. Living among them for years, and when found, only a mark on his body let the family know for sure it was him.
Worth the read.

Facinating

This is a fascinating account of a white boy captured and raised by American Indians. He became an Indian and as an adult returned to his original family. I really enjoyed McBride's narration. Would love more books read by him.
