Creek Captives fictionalizes for young readers real events, people, and places from the era when Alabama and Georgia were the “wild west” of a new nation. Author Helen Blackshear tells the stories of the famous and infamous figures who peopled the old frontier in the early days of American independence. Taken from historical archives, these tales of Sam Dale, Alexander McGillivray, and William Weatherford, among others, will thrill young and old alike as fascinating history becomes real. Daring hunting exhibitions, bloodcurdling stagecoach ambushes, terrifying captures by rogue Creek sects, and survival by musket and hatchet make this pulse-pounding collection of young adult stories both fun to read and important to the understanding of the sociopolitical forces of change in pioneer days in the Southeast.
