Calico Captive

Calico Captive by Elizabeth George Speare is an adventure and travel story set shortly before the French and Indian War which stretches from Charleston all the way to an Indian camp, and then to Montreal.

Young Miriam Willard, who lives with her sister, would have never guessed that the next step after seeing her first party and getting her first beau was being rudely awakened and captured by wild Indians. Then she was dragged through dense foliage with her pregnant sister and her family to who knows where or why.

I loved this book and couldn't put it down. I would recommend it to anyone who appreciates history or to anyone who enjoys heart-warming family stories. I wouldn't put an age limit on Calico Captive because it is truly captivating for all ages
