The expansion of white settlement into The Old West created a clash of cultures. Editor Kathleen Shelby Boyett has gathered captivity narratives from The Old West period in America, choosing each for its variety in the genre. Here the reader will find stories of men, women, and children, some told in first-person accounts, some told by relatives, and others use a mix of both. Some stories even include tributes written in poetry form. Some of the captivities were blessedly short and others lasted five years or more. Some escaped their captivity through a harrowing journey, and others were ransomed or simply allowed to leave. Some captives later only desired to exploit their experiences and others gained a new understanding of the Native Americans who captured them. The forward in this edition makes it clear that this work is meant to present both sides of the story; both the brutalities of captivity for which white European settlers were unprepared and the provocation that caused the Native Americans to resort to the capture of settlers. The accounts in this volume are highly descriptive of life in The Old West in America and are dramatic enough to be an exciting armchair adventure into the past.
