The true story of Mary Jemison, the Scot-Irish girl captured by the Shawnee and French and "gifted" to two Seneca sisters. Mary Jemison once owned a large portion of what is now Letchworth State Park in upstate New York. Her story is not only one of courage and fortitude but of a journey toward love of a culture and spirituality that she would call her own.
This is the only version of Mary Jemison;s story sanctioned as true by the Seneca nation.
Epilogue by Peter Jemison, Mary Jemison's great grand nephew.
