The Captured Author:Scott Zesch Copied from back, "Advance praise for The Captured — 'A true American saga in every sense. Scott Zesch brings to light the stark truth of the cultural clash between Native Americans and white settlers in this ultimate story of self-discovery told against a backdrop of bigotry and fear on the Texas frontier. This book reveals that both sides in th... more »e conflict were capable of alternating acts of compassion and brutality. It also helps readers realize how white youths taken captive by Comanche warriors would often struggle between returning to their homes and blood ties and clinging to the nomadic lifestyle that some of them came to love.' Michael Wallis, author of The Real Wild West
'An excellent book on a subject rarely discussed anymore. Scott Zesch's search for the facts about a mysterious great-great-great-uncle led him to research all that is known today about the experiences of several Texas Hill Country children kidnapped by Indians in the 1800s. Most who survived the initial ordeal became Indian at heart and never quite reconciled to white society, remaining tragically adrift between two very different worlds. The Captured vividly tells it like it was, without yielding to myth or political correctness.' Elmer Kelton, author of The Way of the Coyote."
