"Mary Jemison is a girl who loves corn and only eats it. One day she and her family are attacked by Indians and take Molly captive to a Seneca town. There she learns their language and is able to speak through her sadness. One day she sees a familiar face. His name was Fallenash and he brought news that a fort had fallen. Meanwhile Mary (now Corn Tassel) grows to love the Indians and when she gets a chance to leave them she decides to stay. Five stars."


Timothy, age 12
