My favourite is
MARY JEMISON INDIAN CAPTIVE
by Jeanne Lemonnier Gardner

Tracy Hinson | 3 comments I believe I found it. Ride the Wind. Lucia St Clair Robson
In 1836, when she was nine years old, Cynthia Ann Parker was kidnapped by Comanche Indians. This is the story of how she grew up with them, mastered their ways, married one of their leaders, and became, in every way, a Comanche woman. It is also the story of a proud and innocent people whose lives pulsed with the very heartbeat of the land. It is the story of a way of life that is gone forever..
