Captivity of the Oatman Girls
Stratton's narrative vividly describes the Oatman family, their fateful journey, the massacre, the captivity of the two girls by the Apaches, and their brother's search for them. Olive Oatman's account of her captivity provided one of the earliest descriptions of life in Indian villages of the Southwest.
