Calico Captive by Elizabeth George Speare

274 Pages: A French and Indian War Prisoner

The high strung and talented Miriam Willard's journey, from our past, was the interesting story of an indian captive.  This story tells of the hardships captives must go through as they are brought through the wilderness and sold in Montreal, Canada to the french.  Miriam goes through much on her journey and matures as a result of it.  Figuring out who she wants to have as her husband was an accomplishment of hers and you may be surprised who she ends up choosing.  This book was a very colorful and captivating story of a girl's struggle to survive.  It kept me reading it till the end and is great for young readers interested in suspense, indian prisoners, and history.

(This book was part of my Sonlight U.S. History curriculum and I recommend it to other home school families.)
