A Woman of Courage on the West Virginia Frontier (HC-7950) A Woman of Courage on the West Virginia Frontier (HC-7950)
Robert Thompson first read about his fraternal fifth great-grandmother in the 1980's when reading a series of genealogical monograms written in 1979. Further inspiration for his story came when he had a chance to visit Prickett's Fort near Fairmont, West Virginia which was the site of Phebe's marriage to Thomas Cunningham. At that moment the idea of Phebe became more than just a name on the family tree. After seeking and finding the location of Phebe and Thomas's homestead he was overcome with emotion and decided that this was a story needing to be told. After thorough research of the culture and society of the settlers and Native Americans he put together this intriguing story of these frontier pioneers. Paperback, 158 pages

Shawnee Captive: The Story of Mary Draper Ingles (HC-7950) Shawnee Captive: The Story of Mary Draper Ingles (HC-7950)
By Mary Rodd Furbee. In 1745, Mary Draper moved with her parents to Drapers Meadow in the Shenandoah Valley. Mary and her family were industrious and strong, quickly learning skills to survive on the frontier. In 1750, at the age of seventeen, Mary Draper Married twenty-year-old Will Ingles, the first wedding of two white settlers in the region. As more Europeans moved into the ares, tension between the settlers and the Native Americans increased. Raids and killings by both sides became common. One day a band of Shawnee warriors stormed Drapers Meadow, killing some settlers and burning the settlement to the ground. Taken captive were Mary, pregnant with her third child, her two young sons, and her sister-in-law. Through intuition and courage Mary impressed her kidnappers almost immediately. The captives were marched 800 miles over mountains to a Shawnee village on the Ohio River, presumably to spend the rest of their lives among the Shawnee tribe. But Mary vowed to escape and return to her husband and her people. The story of this remarkable woman's harrowing and courageous trip home places Mary Ingles at the pinnacle of American frontier heroes. 112 pages, paperback.
