2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Michael Breen on October 13, 2009
Format: Paperback
"By the second half of the 18th century... Puritan influence had declined... and captivity narratives... became less dominated by religious symbolism and metaphorical structures.... the north country narratives... in this volume may be less famous... but they more often portray Indian captors as human individuals rather than agents of the Devil, and they also offer glimpses of the daily life of frontier communities that existed on the edges of Indian country." That's a damned interesting thesis. The narratives in this volume- particularly Susannah Johnson's- provide the reader with a clearer- but still imperfect- view of Northeastern Indians. I'm glad I tackled these with some background knowledge of events on the New England Frontier, but Calloway's introductory notes will bring the casual reader up to speed as well.

By john rowlinson on November 11, 2013
Format: Paperback
This book is a collection of captivity narratives which are out of copyright and the original books can be downloaded off many sites. North Country Captives adds a very liberal bias to the stories that was hard to overlook. I would suggest passing on this book.
