Here are unforgettable true accounts of grisly tortures, bloody conflicts, relentless pursuits, miraculous escapes...even the adoption of captives into Indian tribes. By inference, the chronicles also offer a revealing picture of Indian culture - love, marriage, witchcraft, burial rituals, and much more - as well as a rare glimpse of the hardships of frontier life and the forces that shaped America's pioneer spirit.
