A Quaker girl's diary reflects her experiences growing up in the Delaware River Valley of Pennsylvania and her capture by Lenape Indians in 1763.

Excerpt/First Sentence(s):
Today Papa gave Thomas and me new copybooks, black-walnut ink, and quills.

Back Cover:
Something strange happened to me today, Papa. Without warning, I began to say all my thoughts out loud. And many of them were most bitter. It happened when I was walking behind the hunter with the eagle painted on his cheek...suddenly my wrath poured out like fire. I told him that I was not a savage like him and the others! I told him that...I despise everything about him and his people....

He did not turn back even once to look at me, nor to command me to be silent. Indeed, I began to wonder if he had heard me at all. Then I wondered if I had even spoken. Was I only thinking these venomous thoughts?

I fear I am going mad, Papa. Perhaps invisible too. Worst of all, my ink is nearly for certain, I will totally disappear.
