9780312317898: The Captured: A True Story of Abduction by Indians on the Texas Frontier

On New Year's Day in 1870, ten-year-old Adolph Korn was kidnapped by an Apache raiding party. Traded to Comaches, he thrived in the rough, nomadic existence, quickly becoming one of the tribe's fiercest warriors. Forcibly returned to his parents after three years, Korn never adjusted to life in white society. He spent his last years in a cave, all but forgotten by his family.

That is, until Scott Zesch stumbled over his own great-great-great uncle's grave. Determined to understand how such a "good boy" could have become Indianized so completely, Zesch travels across the west, digging through archives, speaking with Comanche elders, and tracking eight other child captives from the region with hauntingly similar experiences. With a historians rigor and a novelists eye, Zesch's The Captured paints a vivid portrait of life on the Texas frontier, offering a rare account of captivity.

"A carefully written, well-researched contribution to Western history -- and to a promising new genre: the anthropology of the stolen." - Kirkus Reviews

From AudioFile:

On New Year's Day 1870, 10-year-old Adolph Korn was kidnapped by Indians. Nor was his abduction painless. First struck down with a pistol, he later fell off a horse and was crippled. Yet by the time he was restored to his parents--just three years later--Adolph was a Commanche who could never adjust to the society that had "rescued" him from savagery. This and other tales of white Indians, stunningly written by one of Adolph's distant relatives, reveal how subjective--perhaps even mistaken--is our understanding of family and what constitutes the good life. Golden-voiced Grover Gardner charges his rich baritone with the thrill of discovery. B.H.C. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
