    Most wonderful read!

    I have just completed reading this book by Scott Zesch and found it to be beautifully written. The book reads very smooth from beginning to end and is written with such compasion. I was so impressed with the author I checked to see what else he had written and was disappointed to know he only had one other book published. I would defintely recommend 'The Captured' to anyone who embraces the West.

    Excellent Read

    I purchased both the paperback and the nook book. The paperback has additional pictures that help with the experience. The publisher did not digitize the additional images for the nook for whatever the reason.
    The story is excellent and well documented. I would recommend this for all students of American History and just a good read for others.

    Loved this book

    I was intrigued at first, then got so caught up that I can't wait to read more about the white captives or white indians! Very well researched and written and gives a good account of what the captives experienced with the Indians.

    A complete account

    Though I had read specific accounts of some of these captives, I have never read any book which so expertly relates their individual stories while comparing and contrasting their experiences and attempting to give explanations for the resulting changes in the children. I was thoroughly impressed with the researching and the filtering through masses of materials to separate fact from legend. This very readable book allowed me to gain insights into not only the captives, but also the political movements of the time.

    Best book I've read this year

    This book was very interesting and informative. It was hard to put down. Not only did the author cover life in the Indian camps, but also what life was like when they were returned to their families and how they ended their lives.
