Mary Ingles was twenty-three, happily married, and pregnant with her third child when Shawnee Indians invaded her peaceful Virginia settlement in 1755 and kidnapped her, leaving behind a bloody massacre. For months they held her captive, but nothing could imprison her spirit.

With the rushing Ohio River as her guide, Mary Ingles walked one thousand miles through an untamed wilderness no white woman had ever seen. Her story lives on—an extraordinary testimony to the indomitable strength of one pioneer woman who risked her life to return to her own people.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Patty | 2/18/2014

    " Wow, what a story! Well written and well researched true story of a woman captured by Indians in the late 1700's. It's the story of her escape and all the details. The last page is a real tear jerker so have the tissues near by. "

    " This is a remarkable story about a women's desire and sturggles to return to her husband after being kidnapped by Native Americans. The first part of it is a little graphic, but isn't so the rest of the book. I love it. "

    " This book was very descriptive. I was advised to skip the Indian massacre at the beginning of the book. it was very graphic, and yet it helped me to understand the drive that Mary had to escape the savages and return to her husband. This was a book that I looked forward to reading each night, excited to be enthralled by the adventure and fortitude of Mary as she journeyed along the river. "
