Indian Captive: The Story of Mary Jemison by Lois Lenski

Twelve-year-old Molly Jemison is kidnapped and given to some women of the Seneca Tribe. She goes from frightened to learning about and embracing the Native ways, though always wanting to find her first family again.

Indian Captive: The Story of Mary Jemison is based on a true story. The book reads fast and guides the reader through Molly’s emotions as a captive of the Seneca people. I highly recommend reading it to middle grade age kids.
