About Book

From School Library Journal
YA-- A story of extraordinary courage and human survival as told by the subject herself, originally published in 1824. Jemison recounts how she was captured as a teenager by Shawnee Indians, who mutilated and killed her family. She was then sold to two Seneca sisters, with whom she remained willingly, married twice, and produced many children. This version of the affecting account is edited by feminist scholar and teacher June Namias.

Book Description
The Peace of 1783, and the consequent cessation of Indian hostilities and barbarities, returned to their friends those prisoners, who had escaped the tomahawk, the gauntlet, and the savage fire, after their having spent many years in captivity, and restored harmony to society.
