Abstract:

In 1754 an Indian raid on her small New Hampshire town leaves Miriam Willard a prisoner of the Indians, forced to take part in a harrowing march north. Knowing that all that awaits her at the end of the trail is an Indian gauntlet and a life of slavery, how can she go on? In Colonial America, the Johnson family are captured by Indians and forced on a long trek. Early one morning in the year 1754 the stillness of Charlestown, New Hampshire, was shattered by shrill war whoops and the terror of an Indian raid. Young Miriam Willard, on a day which had promised new happiness, found herself instead a captive on a forest trail, caught up in the ebb and flow of the French and Indian War. It was a horrowing march north. Miriam could only force herself to the next stopping place, the next small portion of food, the next icy stream to be crossed. What waits at the end of the trail--besides an Indian quantlet and a life of slavery? In Colonial America, the Johnson family are captured by Indians & forced on a long trek.
