Was pleasantly surprised this book was really good and was based off a real event in history. A family settled near the Blue Ridge Mountains is attacked by indians. The wife and sister-in-law of one of the settlers is kidnapped and it tells about how she is separated from her children and sister-in-law and begins the journey back to her husband. Starvation is the main thing she faces along with the old Dutch woman she escaped with trying to eat her. I have nevr heard of this author before but he painted a realistic picture of life on the frontier.
