This book was excellent! The MC (main character), Carrie, is inspiring as she witnesses to the Cheyenne Indians who capture her. It was great how, even after she MINOR SPOILER!! lost her Bible SPOILER END!! she still was able to share with them through Bible verses she had memorized. It challenged me to memorize verses myself. I loved seeing the Indians grow to come to know Christ. This book was written for ages 7-9, but I, a 12-year-old, still enjoyed it very much. ;)

A young girl is lost from her wagon train and captured by the Cheyenne. For a year she lives out bravery and faith in the midst of a culture she fears at first but learns to love. One of my favorite books when I was in about third grade. Reread it over and over for several years, loved the characters so much; and the "storing up treasure in heaven" message stuck with me, lived out in these pages by a girl who has lost everything in her life except her Bible. A great discussion book for kids on h ...more

I just finished reading this with Podling 4. My biggest complaints are that the little girl doesn't act her age and that the barriers of language and culture are overcome much too quickly. The book is quite didactic, but I expect that from this publisher, so that didn't bother me. It should be said that Podling 4 liked the read and only had to have a few of the intuitive leaps explained to her, so that should count in the book's favor.
