More Description

In this gripping tale set in 1793, 15-year-old Deliverance Pelton and her younger cousin are sold at a pauper auction after their family is killed on a flooding river. Their new master was raised by Seneca Indians, and he sends Livy (Deliverance) to his Seneca relatives to teach spinning. Livy is terrified; she has been raised to believe that there's nothing more dangerous than an Indian. But then love blossoms between her and a young Seneca man -- and leads to great danger for them both. This is a moving personal story about a spirited girl. It is also a thought-provoking exploration of the relations between Americans, ex-Tories, and Native Americans in the wake of the American Revolution.
