    1 thought on “Captives Among the Indians

    1. agh good grief. This was pure torture to read. My Kindle says I left off at 24%. Just realizing now that there are other stories in this book other than the first one. But I cannot take it anymore. The long droning story of killing animals. It is not the killing that bothers me but the repetition.No more thank you.
