    " This was one of the most memorable books I've read. Helen and her little sister are kidnapped and adopted by "The People" ... it was an awesome read for a scrawny 12 year old in Pittsburgh. This was waayyyy better than Robert Louis Stevenson's "Kidnapped" which my father forced me to read. "

    " According to my diary from 1966 I picked this up at the library. Found it to be fairly good but overall a bit superficial & distant in tone. I compared it to The Scarlet Plume, also an Indian captivity novel, that I had found to be far more exciting. "

    " There have been a lot of stories of the young white woman captured by the Indians and raised by them. Then they come in contact with the white men. At least one John Wayne movie. I suspect that this book is a cut above in so far as it portrays the Indian cultures in the Texas area. "
