Grade 4 and up. Caty Logan is a young Quaker girl living in the Delaware Valley of Pennsylvania in 1763. Caty and her brother Thomas are captured by a Lenape Native American tribe on their way to school. Caty fears for her and her brother's lives until she realizes the Lenape do not want to harm them. A great piece of historical fiction, the book sheds light on Quaker life and Lenape culture.
