From the Author
This book won the 2012 Will Rogers Medallion Award and was named a finalist in both the WILLA Literary Awards and the Carol Awards. Researching to write Captive Trail took me through some excruciating times in Texas history, and I hope you enjoy Taabe's journey.

This book I truly enjoyed where it started out Ned finding Billie (Taabe Waipu) almost dead after escaping from being held captive for many years from the Indians. He was also accompanied by a number of Nuns that were going to be setting up a school They took her in an harbored her, I liked how kind they were, taught her to live once again in the "white" world, taught her about God ... and overall kindness at the risk of their own lives. It is a bit different than many other books and I think tha was part of the intrigue ... even different from other captive books, and I felt definitely worth reading.
I think this book takes one back to those times of how unsafe one had to feel, how vulnerable you were to the Indians ... it had to be frightening ... I know I thought alot about it afterwards ... and I hae read so many books in my lifetime, just something about this book kind of haunted me for a number of days... however, I have to admit I have order number 4, and will most likely preorder #5 & 6 ... have to see this darn storyline to the end now ...
"Captive Trail" is a well written story that quickly captures your attention and you will find yourself totally absorbed, not wanting to stop reading until that final word.
Just what is the beautiful "sun-woman's" story and can Ned miraculously find a way to reunite Taabe with her original family? Does he even want to? Will the determined warrior following Taabe give her up without a fight? This captivating story is yet another example of Susan Page Davis's ability to weave a satisfying western tale..
