A band of Indians attacked Hatfield, Massachusetts, on September 19, 1677, burning, looting, and killing. They carried off seventeen people, mostly women and children. Their destination, on foot, was Canada. Among them were Martha Waite, pregnant, and her three girls, ages two, four, and six. Captives, 1677, the story of this first Indian/Canadian kidnapping, is a stirring novel of courageous survival, love, and rescue. It follows the captives’ terrible ordeal and the rescue mission of Martha’s husband Benjamin Waite and his friend Stephen Jennings from Hatfield, to Count Frontenac’s court in Quebec, and back to Massachusetts with the captives’ triumphal return. A forgotten saga of American heroism is brought to vivid life in Captives, 1677.
