Mary is captured by Delaware Native Americans to replace a girl who has died. She starts out resisting the Delaware ways and hating them, and is determined to escape and return to her family. Gradually, however, she begins to accept them and to become one of them. Eventually she finds that she has a place there just as she had a place with her original family and she is of two cultures.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0440415918, Paperback)

May 11, 1759. On the morning of Mary Campbell's 12th birthday, her life takes a terrifying turn for the worse. She is kidnapped by the fearsome Delaware Indians and taken from her family in Pennsylvania, all the way to Delaware on foot.

Mary refuses to adopt any of the Delaware ways and holds on to the memory of her family as tightly as she does her dreams for escape. But in order to survive, Mary pretends to be learning and not planning her escape.

As the seasons change, Mary realizes with surprise that she is no longer pretending. When the chance comes for Mary to leave, she is not sure that she wants to return to her old life. Is she Mary Campbell or Woman-Who-Saved-The-Corn?
