Calico Captive

Calico Captive

In 1754 New Hampshire, young Miriam Willard finds herself caught up in the French Indian War, and is captive on a harrowing march north to a life of hard work and perhaps even slavery. Miriam and her companions reach Montreal, and meet the prominent Du Quesne family, who introduce her to a life she never imagined. Based on an actual diary published in 1807.

Our boys (8,10,12) have enjoyed this book as a read aloud with me trying to insert a French-canadian accent. I thought the author did a great job of bringing a perspective of this time period from 3 very different sides, Native, English and French. (Our boys want to know if anyone has written the story from Sylvanus'point of view.)
