Overview

Shawnee Captive: The Story of Mary Draper Ingles is the true story of heroic Mary Draper Ingles. In 1745, Mary moved with her parents to Draper's Meadow in the Shenandoah Valley. Here they hoped to finally have rich farmland and the freedom to worship freely--far from the greedy landlords of their native Ireland and the partisan rules of Quaker Pennsylvania. Mary and her family were industrious and strong, quickly learning skills to survive on the frontier.  In 1750, at the age of seventeen, Mary Draper married twenty-year old Will Ingles-the first wedding of two white settlers in the region.

As more Europeans moved into the area, tension between the settlers and the Native Americans increased.  Raids and killings by both sides became common. One day while the men were at harvest, a band of Shawnee warriors stormed Draper's Meadow, killing some settlers and burning the settlement to the ground. Taken captive were Mary, pregnant with her third child, her two young sons, and her injured sister-in-law. 

Through intuition and courage Mary impressed her kidnappers almost immediately. The captives were marched 800 miles over mountains to a Shawnee village on the Ohio River, presumably to spend the rest of their lives among the Shawnee tribe.  But Mary vowed to escape and return to her husband and her people. The story of this remarkable woman's harrowing and courageous trip home places Mary Ingles at the pinnacle of American frontier heroes.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-In 1755, Mary Draper Ingles, her two sons, and her sister-in-law were taken from their Shenandoah Valley home by a band of Shawnee Indians. Ingles was expecting her third child at the time of her capture. Her mother and her sister-in-law's baby were murdered in the raid. Furbee begins with the Draper family's move to this largely unsettled area. Some of the hardships and setbacks endured over time, Mary's eventual marriage to Will Ingles, and the political climate that helped shape their experience are described. Then comes the raid that led to her capture, her time in captivity, her daring escape, and her 800-mile journey back home. Some of the reasons for the conflicts between the Native Americans and the white settlers are also presented. The workmanlike text tries hard to avoid biased language, although Furbee does not shrink from reflecting the attitudes toward Native Americans held by Ingles, her family, and friends. Fairly gruesome events are described, but they are neither sensationalized nor glossed over. The narrative does present the subject's feelings and thoughts from time to time, but conversations are held to a minimum and the effect is to lend texture to what might have otherwise been a rather dry text. The result is both a readable biography of a daring frontier woman and a snapshot of life in pre-Revolutionary America. It's not an essential purchase, but collections needing biographies of women pioneers or stories of Colonial America might consider it.-Linda Greengrass, Bank Street College Library, New York City Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
