INDIAN CAPTIVE: The Story of Mary Jemison

Email this review


Based on factual records, this story of the formative years during which thirteen year old Mary Jemison made her adjustment to the life of a member of the Seneca tribe, is an extraordinarily perceptive and vigorous picture of Indian life, of the kindliness with which white captive children were treated, of the steps by which a white child came to think and be Indian. Intimate human bits about the daily, monthly, seasonal round; the presentation of the struggle in Molly's emotions, carefully and convincingly handled.
