Natasha | 1 comments I read a book about a young girl who was kidnapped from her home by indians. I think it could have been a romance novel for she falls in love with one of the indians and becomes his wife. I remember she had really white skin and I think she had red hair but could be wrong about the hair. Im pretty sure she has children to the indian and I think she might have had a miscarriage at some point. The more I think about it the more Im convinced it was some kind of romance novel. it was written more like a romance novel than a serious novel

Jill | 3 comments Is it possibly Ride the Wind by Lucia St. Clair Robson? Or maybe Silken Savage by Catherine Hart?

Noel | 4 comments This story line sounds so much like the book I'm looking for. But in mine, I'm pretty sure the girl was American Indian. She had been taken from her village and later falls for her captor. Whom she initially despised. I remember that he was covered entirely with tattoos...

Standing in the Light: The Captive Diary of Catharine Carey Logan, Delaware Valley, Pennsylvania, 1763

Beaded Moccasins (I'm pretty sure this girl has red hair)

stormhawk | 126 comments perhaps it's Indian Captive: The Story of Mary Jemison - Lois Lenski

It's Y.A., published in the 1940s, I think.

Cheryl (cherylllr) http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/7... is one of the many other threads about books about girls captured by Indians. There's a good list there, and there's a tip about searching for more titles.

Rhianna um maybe Frontier Lady by Judith Pella or any other one in that 3 book series?

Cheryl (cherylllr) It's interesting that the character in Melissa's book (Standing in the Light: The Captive Diary of Catharine Carey Logan, Delaware Valley, Pennsylvania, 1763) is a Quaker girl. This group repeatedly gets requests for certain books about Quakers, too.

Vail (Vailkyrie) | 1 comments The one I'm thinking of, she wasn't a captive but a translator sent from a community of Puritans or Quakers to learn (I think it was) Cherokee. And somehow was forced out by her own community or somehow got stuck with the tribe.

Is it the one where she has to build her tent/teepee across the road from the rest of the tribe?

There was a male medicine man that she eventually fell in love with.

Edit: This is the one I'm thinking of: The Primrose Way by Jackie French Koller

Mar | 1 comments It is Follow the River - about Mary Ingals - not the Little House Mary Ingalls - she is red headed and has her baby while they are headed for the Indian Camp - Most of her kids stay with the Indians, but she escapes and has a hard road back. When she gets home she is white headed.

Cheryl (cherylllr) Follow the River, for the link.

Laurie (LaurieLynette) | 327 comments Well if she is I read 2 books of this type that wasn't mentioned above and might come in handy if someone is ever looking for the same type of books.
