This volume collects a wide variety of works from a uniquely
American literary tradition, the captivity narrative. Beginning
with an excerpt from Hans Staden's The True History of His
Captivity, which influenced the American captivity narrative, this
volume presents accounts by early settlers held captive by Native
Americans (Mary Rowlandson, John Smith), narratives by African
American slaves (Olaudah Equiano, John Marrant), and others.
Collected with the real-life accounts are two captivity poems by
Lucy Terry and John Rolling Ridge, and several popular tales and
legends on the subject.
