    One thought on “The Captive Witch”

    1. This was the very first adult book I ever read way back in the 1950s. Found a used copy and just read it again. Still good.Adam Frane is a 24-year-old man who is working as a soldier/guide for the Kentuckians in 1790. He is forced to capture a young Indian girl then learns she is really a white woman. Ayunita, or Nita, was captured when she was only 4 years old. Adam determines to take her back to her family - if he can find them.However, Adam also has another problem.

    2. I enjoyed The Captive Witch because it was about the area of Kentucky that I live in now. I like to imagine what Kentucky was like back in the time of this book. I would like to have a time machine to travel back to that time and see what the country looked like. I'm afraid, though, that I am not cut out to live that kind of life that was necessary at that time.

    3. One of my top ten books of all time. When I cannot sleep at night, I just reread the last chapter and have pleasant dreams.

    4. It's been quite awhile since I read a Western novel. The last were The Sackett books by Louis L'Amour. There is a certain style to a Western novel I think. Overall I enjoyed The Captive Witch. It is about the settling of the Kentucky wilderness in its simplest form; it's also a love story, one man trying to decide between two women, a wilful young girl who has grown up among the Cherokee Indians and a handsome widow, settling in Kentucky with her brothers. The story also involves the Wars of Ind [...]

    5. Vivid historical fiction, perhaps too vivid description of life on the Kentucky frontier during the Revolutionary War, as the hero is torn between two women: a traditional and proud local beauty who is well connected and an impetuous woman brought up by Indians.
