4- Indian Captivity Narratives
In my American Lit class we just read Mary Rowlandson's account of her time in Indian captivity. This was a wonderful reminder to me of one of my very first works of historical fiction! In elementary school I wrote an entire journal that was meant to be that of a young girl who had been captured by Indians. Although I can't recall much of the work itself, I do remember having the Indians nickname her Corn Silk on account of her lovely fair hair.
