In the 1850s, pioneer girl Olive Oatman travels with her family on the Santa Fe Trail. When Olive and her sister are captured by Yavapai Indians, their lives take an unexpected and incredibly difficult turn. This story is inspiring, but it also has some very sad parts that will likely bring tears to your eyes. It is based on a true story. The writing and educational value are wonderful.
