The other problem with this book is the scattered writing style. The author frequently jumps from one topic to another, goes back and forth in time, writes about one captive then suddenly changes to another. Furthermore, there are some passages that read like fiction, and it's not always clear what is factual and what is not.
If you are interested in reading about the experiences that captives had while living with Native Americans, then I can recommend "Captured by the Indians: 15 Firsthand Accounts, 1750-1870" by Frederick Drimmer and especially "The Falcon" by John Tanner.
