Sword of the Wilderness

 Sword of the Wilderness by Elizabeth Coatsworth tells the story of a child kidnapped by Native Americans in 1689 in Maine. This copy was published in 1936 and purchased at Maine Bookhouse in Oxford, Maine. I particularly enjoy collecting old illustrated children’s literature that describes life in early America, particularly encounters with Native Americans, so this fits right in.
