Mary Ingles was twenty-three, happily married, and pregnant with her third child when Shawnee Indians invaded her peaceful Virginia settlement in 1755 and kidnapped her, leaving behind a bloody massacre.

Her story lives on -- extraordinary testimony to the indomitable strength of one pioneer woman who risked her life to return to her own people.
