Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 5–8—This "Indian captivity" novel is a fictionalized version of the experiences of a Puritan girl who was captured by Mohawk warriors at the age of seven. Eunice and her family settled in Deerfield, MA, just prior to the French and Indian War. Mohawks and settlers were killed, and among the dead were Eunice's mother and newborn sister. Eunice and her family are captured and separated from each other, and she is brought to a Mohawk village in Canada under French rule and influenced by Catholic missions. Her father, a prominent minister, escapes and negotiates the release of her two brothers, but Eunice's new family refuses to let her go. She ultimately decides to remain with the Mohawk family. The story follows her life among the Mohawk and describes various cultural beliefs and customs, the conflict between the Puritan and Catholic beliefs, and the prejudiced views both groups held about the Mohawk. What makes the story of Eunice, who later was given the name Gannenstenhai (She Brings in Corn), compelling is the portrayal of her transition from a white, colonialist culture to the Mohawk way of life. VERDICT Though far from a perfect representation of Mohawk history and culture, this novel nevertheless offers young readers a window into the conflicting cultural privileges and prejudices at play during this period of time. A historical novel best used in conjunction with supplemental texts and nonfiction about the relationship between colonists and Native peoples of the Americas.—Naomi Caldwell, Alabama State University, Montgomery

Review

"A powerful and haunting tale, beautifully told."
(Jill Lepore, New Yorker staff writer and author of The Secret History of Wonder Woman)

"The narrative concentrates on Eunice’s early life, and Demos appends clarifications about the facts and fictions in the story as well as detailed source notes . . . the story is well researched and told, openly admits that Europeans stole indigenous lands, and offers a clear explanation of the alliances and motivations of the groups involved in this conflict."
(Booklist)

"The documentation shows careful research by the author. This volume, aimed to be read by children, was inspired by the National Book Award finalist, The Unredeemed Captive: A Family Story from Early America (Alfred A. Knopf 1994). If you need a historical fiction title based on an actual person, this volume could be your choice."
(School Library Connection)

" . . . this novel offers young readers a window into the conflicting cultural privileges and prejudices at play during this period of time."
(School Library Journal)

"Demos’ presentation of the story from the perspective of this captive Puritan girl who became a Mohawk makes this an accessible narrative history for young readers."
(International Literacy Association)
