Book Review of Follow the River

Follow the River
reviewed on + 4 more book reviews

My friend, who is a retired history teacher, recommended this book. It tells the true story of a frontier woman's escape and amazing journey home after she is kidnapped by Shawnee Indians. The author went to great lengths to capture as many factual details as he could of her journey, even following her route himself. I was riveted from the very beginning and couldn't put it down, reading most of it in one sitting.
