Calico Captive

Calico Captive

by Elizabeth George Speare


Based on an actual narrative diary published in 1807, Calico Captive skillfully reenacts an absorbing facet of history. Teenager Miriam Willard and her sister, brother-in-law, and their three children awake one morning to the terrifying cries of an Indian raid. Only the night before, Miriam's life had taken such a happy turn as a new sweetheart, Phineas Whitney, made his feelings known. Now he and her old life seem a million miles away as Miriam and her family are taken captive and forced to make the hazardous march north to Montreal, where a life of hard work and slavery is rumored to await.
