A Narrative of the Life of Mrs. Mary Jemison - E. James Seaver

Almost a year ago I read Indian Captive: The Story of Mary Jemison by Lois Lenski, which is based on a the true story of Mary Jemison. That book led to research Mary Jemison online, which in turn led me to this book.

While not written by Mary herself, the authors says Mary herself related the story of her life to him, and from her own words he'd written this book.

It was a good book, lots of information not just about Mary herself, but family and the tribe that adopted her.

Mary really had a hard life, but it seemed she didn't let it get her down. Yes, there were times she was sad, or angry, but she didn't let whatever happen to her keep her from living her life.

I did feel bad for her, especially when it came to her sons.

I liked this book and if you're interested in learning about Mary Jemison, I definitely recommend giving this book a read.
