The Beaded Moccasins

by Lynda Durrant

On the morning of her twelfth birthday, Mary Campbell gets angry with her mother and storms out of the cabin-never to return. As she picks wild strawberries and plans her apology, Mary is captured by Delaware Indians and plunged into a life that is fearsome, strenuous, and utterly unlike the one she knows, beginning with the journey on foot from Pennsylvania to the Delawares' new home in Ohio Territory. As the idea of escape becomes less feasible and less urgent, Mary finds herself adapting to the routines, traditions, and beliefs of her captors, and discovers within herself reserves of strength she hadn't known were hers. The life of the real Mary Campbell, taken by Delawares in 1759, is the basis for this enthralling, historically detailed adventure, and for the perceptive portrait of a young woman finding her place in a culture vastly different from her own.
