Lenski devotes much time to research each of her books--usually about a different rural area of America. Her excellent b/w illustrations enhance our reading enjoyment and appreciation for the material culture of the Senecas--one of the Five Nations under the Iroquois banner.
During her first two years of captivity (as a replacement for a dead clansman), Molly recalls her parents' last words to her when she and a neighbor boy were given moccasins and roughly marched off (before her entire family was butchered on the trail). Her pa assured her that her golden hair would endear her to the Indians; in fact she was called Corn Tassel. She also kept her ma's words in her heart: to be brave, to be flexible and accept her situation with grace; to practice her English in secret and never forget her name, her family or her Bible teachings.
Molly's loyalties were tested many times over the years, for she hated the thought of becoming an Indian. Yet can a 12-year-old girl (Lenski makes her younger) live long in an emotional vacuum? Respect, gratitude and friendship gradually slip into her heart despite herself. Will she ever relinquish her dream to escape back to white civilization?Read more ›
The book is about Molly Jemison who is taken away from her family when the Indians take over her house. They take her to become an Indian and rename her Corn Tassel for her yellow hair. She has to learn the Indian language and ways and find out where her soul is, with the whites or the Indian tribe. The book is about a white girl living in an Indian village and her journey to accepting her new life.
I recommended this book to history lovers like myself who love to learn about the past, the Indian and colonial times. This book sometimes goes on a subject and takes a long time to get back to the story or answer a question, which I found difficult.
