Follow the River
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. For months they held her captive. But nothing could imprison her spirit. With the rushing Ohio River as her guide, Mary Ingles walked one thousand miles through an untamed wilderness no white woman had ever seen. Her story lives on -- extraordinary testimony to the indomitable strength of one pioneer woman who risked her life to return to her own people.

Review: Follow the RiverUser Review - Kylee McClellan - Goodreads
I almost gave this book 3 stars only because it was sad and depressing, but with a good ending.. it was very interesting and well written. Even though I just wanted her to get home already and quit starving! Makes you see why there was such a prejudice towards Indians back in the 1700s. Read full review
