Calico Captive

Calico CaptiveCalico Captive by Elizabeth George Speare
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Well-written historical fiction for young people. There aren't many stories set in colonial America during the Seven Years/French & Indian War. I loved this story when I was elementary-age. At that time, the early part of the story detailing Miriam and her family's lives with Native Americans was my favorite part of the book. Decades later, I find Miriam's life in Montreal more interesting. Since this makes up about 3/4 of the story, it was a nice change from my original readings!
