June 14 – Follow the River by James Alexander Thom.
An interesting follow-up to Wild – which makes Mary Ingles’s trek all the more impressive.
Mary Ingles was twenty-three, married, and pregnant, when Shawnee Indians invaded her peaceful Virginia settlement, killed the men and women, then took her captive. For months, she lived with them, unbroken, until she escaped, and followed a thousand mile trail to freedom–an extraordinary story of a pioneer woman who risked her life to return to her people.
