Journeyforth Captive Treasure

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.

I first became acquainted with this book while I was home schooling my daughter. I now have been a first grade teacher in a Christian School for nine years and have read this story to my class every year. Invariably, the students become absorbed in this tale and wonderful discussions have ensued. The topics have ranged from the absolute faithfulness of God to the benefit of hiding God's Word in our hearts, to the ability of even young children to effectively share the Gospel, to God's promise to using even difficult circumstances for good. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants literature that will make an impact on the heart.

My daughter and I have recently finished this great book and heartily recommend it to you! It is a wonderful, realistic story about how God can use even the most timid believer in marvelous ways - like the Carrie of the story! We hope you enjoy this as much as we have. It's quite an inspiration.

MY TWO DAUGHTERS (AGES 3& 6) AND I HAVE JUST FINISHED THIS WONDERFUL BOOK. THEY COULDN'T WAIT TO READ THE NEXT CHAPTER EVERY DAY... A BOOK ABOUT A 9 YR OLD GIRL CAPTURED BY INDIANS WHO OVERCOMES HER FEARS, SADNESS & LONLINESS BY THE COMFORT OF GOD'S WORD TAUGHT TO HER BY HER FATHER. HER ONLY POSSESSION BEING THE BIBLE, SHE CLINGS TO THE PROMISES AND STORIES WITHIN IT TO SUSTAIN HER AND TO DRAW OTHERS TO CHRIST. A HAPPY ENDING, SHE IS REUNITED WITH HER PARENTS AS WELL AS GAINING THE VICTORY AND JOY OF LEADING OTHERS TO SAVING FAITH. THIS IS REAL LIFE STUFF WITH A LITTLE GIRLS STRUGGLES& FEARS AND GOD'S SUPERNATURAL PRESENCE & PROTECTION TO BRING HER THROUGH. WE LOVED IT!
