Item description for Captive Treasure Grade 2-4 by Milly Howard...
Overview When Carrie Talbot begins the trip west with her family, she has no idea what terrible adventures are waiting for her in the dangerous Indian territory. But she carries with her a treasure that can help her through any trouble.
Community Description The long days on the trail were filled with excitement for adventurous Carrie Talbot. And at the end of the trail waited more adventure- she was going to start a brand new life at the Indian mission established by her uncle. Then a sudden encounter with an Indian raiding party left Carrie with more excitement than she wanted. As she rode off helplessly with her captors, frantic thoughts raced through Carrie's mind. Why was one of the Indians so interested in the family Bible she had managed to save? How could she escape? Even if she did, how could she ever find the wagon train again? The raiding party took Carrie deep into the wilderness to a Cheyenne camp on the banks of a distant river. There Carrie met the Indian called the Keeper and began a life far different from any she had ever imagined.

Reviews - What do customers think about Captive Treasure?
Our family loved it! When is the movie? Sep 16, 2008
I am having my 8 year old daughter read this book out loud. I found it so interesting I read it after she went to bed & tonight my husband finished it & said it would make a great family movie! A wholesome but gripping book with great teachings on trusting in God and his word when times are unpredictable and tough. That as we seek to follow him and his word, he is faithful to see us through.
I wasnt impressed. Jul 26, 2005
I usually like Historical Fiction for children, but I really wasn't a fan of this book. The story and presenation are pretty simple and unimaginative. Not what I was expecting at all.
An quirky little book Aug 29, 2000
Captive Treasure is set in the days of the Oregon Trail. When Carrie is captured by indians, she wonders why they are so interested in her bible. When she finally realizes what they want, she is amazed and confused at her love for god.
Covered wagons, Indians, and suspense for young readers! Apr 9, 1999
Between the time that I was in second grade and probably sixth grade, I read this book countless times. The reading level is about fourth grade I guess, but I loved it so much that reading level didn't matter! This story will teach girls about storing up treasure in heaven and trusting God, meanwhile providing a captivating setting that every little girl loves--out on the prairie, with wagon trains and Indians. The main character is beloved and familiar as well--a girl with auburn pigtails, a lot of spunk, and a strong faith in God. Definitely a notable addition to any young girl's library--don't miss it.
