      What a story And it s true This is serious historical fiction Long and descriptive and SO worth the effort to read I am in awe of James Alexander Thom s dedication to authenticity and his exquisitely detailed storytelling Last year when I read Panther in the Sky, I figured none of his other books could be as good I was wrong, lucky me The Red Heart details the life of Frances Slocum from age five until her death at age 74 in 1847 Frances was a Quaker girl in the Susquehanna Valley of Pennsylvani [...]

      After reading this novel, I came to truly respect, admire and love Frances Good Face Little Bear Woman A fiery red headed Quaker who at the age of 5 was captured by Indians and taken from her large family A book based on true events told by a master storyteller, one I ll want to read again 5 Stars

    3. Herman Padilla on said:

      Very excellent book To my way of thinking the American Indians Wars were this nation s longest running war, it ran over 300 years from the 1500 s to nearly the 1900 s It came in three major phases the early explorers and settlers marked by De Soto s invasion of the Southeast, King Phillips War and the Pueblo uprising of 1680, that was the end of the first phase nearly a draw slight advantage to the Europeans The next phase the clearing out of the native tribes in the Northeast and along the rive [...]

      What a story This is a novel based on the true story of Frances Slocum AKA Good Face, Little Bear Woman, Macanawka As a five year old Quaker child living in the Susquahannah River Valley area, Frances was abducted by Lenapeh warriors and given to an Indian woman whose child had been killed by the Long Knives American colonists in the midst of the American Revolution Even though Frances was a red haired wapsini white person and they were much feared, resented, and even hated by all of the natives [...]

      What a terrific book I must be the only person on the planet who didn t know about Frances Slocum, so I was pleasantly surprised and intrigued by her story What an incredible woman Now I want to visit the State Park in Indiana and the gravesite.I enjoy historical fiction books that teach about life in those times In this book, the amazing ways of the Indians survival, in peace and in war times, is fascinating I was particularly the concept of the Three Sisters , i.e seeds for corn, beans and squ [...]

    6. Ann on said:

      Our family has held a number of family reunions at Francis Slocum State Park, but I never knew for whom the park was named Likewise, I have never fully realized the horror inflicted upon native Americans by white settlers and by the government This book brings it all up close and personal and it is written so well in my opinion that The Red Heart will tinge the reader s own heart, even if just a little I admit to an inordinate number of tears during the reading of this book I believe this countr [...]

    7. Nanci on said:

      This book appealed to me in so many way It deals with Indians in the general area where I live so I recognized various places that were mentioned It happens in a time I wasn t well informed about so I learned some valuable history of the Indians and the Whites Lastly, I loved the characters in the book and it is based on a true story always a plus in my book bad pun.

    8. Lynn on said:

      This was a great book, it just got a little long for me I would give it 4.5 stars.

    9. Ashley on said:

      This is my favorite book Words cannot express how good it is Read it

    10. Daniel Mendizabal on said:

      The Red Heart cuenta la verdadera historia de Frances Slocum, una ni a blanca que fue criada por los indios americanos en los siglos XVII y XIX.Es una historia llena de conflictos y detalles muy espec ficos Y nos ense a el valor de la perseverancia, la familia y el amor a los dem s.El hogar no es donde se nace si no donde se crece El amor es incondicional y arde en los corazones de las personas que aman de verdad, al igual que las fogatas que calientas en las noches invernales.

    11. Pam McCombs on said:

      This is a must read historical fiction It was eye opening as to how the native Americans were treated from the beginning I read this book because my cousin s father was a Miami Indian and was directly related to the main character Francis Slocum Good Face Maconakwa Thom does a great job of weaving historical information into Maconakwa s tale.

    12. Lisa on said:

      3.5 stars I ve lived in Indiana my whole life but did not know the story of Frances Slocum This book was long and descriptive and very small type and took much longer for me to finish than most books But it was a very interesting account of Indian life and I learned some local history so it was worth the read.

    13. DaveS on said:

      Thom does something very difficult here by telling this story from the perspective of a female American Indian By doing his homework, he pulls it off big time Great historical story Well written page turner.

    14. Brenda Roberson on said:

      THE RED HEART is based on the true life story of Frances Slocum from the age of 5 until her death at age 74 in 1847 Frances was a Quaker girl growing up in the Susquehanna Valley of Pennsylvania She was stolen by the Delaware Indians when she was 5 years old This may sound barbaric, but many Indians felt justified in taking white children as the replacements for their own children who were killed by white soldiers Frances quickly adapts and was integrated into the Delaware life but then later, t [...]

    15. Judy on said:

      What exhaustive research Thom does This novel is based on the fascinating account of a young five year old Quaker girl who was kidnapped by the Delawares Thom fills in the narrative with logical suppositions of what it would have been like to be living in Deleware and later Miami villages as they are attacked by American troops repeatedly, often prior to harvesting the crops that had been painstakingly planted, resulting in a constant struggle against hunger while attempting to escape to safety [...]

    16. Claudia on said:

      Based on historical characters, it tells the story of a young white Quaker girl in NE PA taken by the Lenape Indians in 1847 Delawares and raised in Native American culture first Lenape and then Miami by marriage We see her thrive in her new culture and fear the white soldiers who break treaty after treaty and bring death, disease, and whiskey and burn their homes and steal their land she never forgets her first family and at one point almost takes steps to pave the way to return to them But the [...]

    17. Becky Norman on said:

      It takes me awhile to get through Thom s booksbut that s only because I feel transported into his worlds and never want to leave I savour every sentence not only the language, the pace, the descriptions but also the philosophy of the peoples he writes about The Red Heart is about a real life Quaker, Frances Slocum, who is taken from her family at a young age by Lenapeh Delaware warriors and brought up as part of their tribe, who treat her as a replacement daughter to a child that was killed by w [...]

      The Red Heart is the fascinating story of Francis Slocum, a Quaker girl who was kidnapped by the Delaware Indians when she was only 5 years old Francis mother never gave up hope that she would be found and always wondered what happened to her little girl The mother passed on her yearning to her sons, who searched yearly for Francis In the meantime, Francis was fully integrated into her new life She was adopted by parents who loved and cherished her grew to womanhood and found a good husband Near [...]

    19. Vicki Tate on said:

      Every time I read a novel about the plight of the American Indians, it breaks my heart that such a noble race were lied to, tracked down, and forced off their own lands Thom always makes a case for the Indians while dispassionately recording the actions of the white settlers and the fledgling new American leaders who stole their lands and forced them from their homes, burning and destroying everything of value that the Indians possessed in attempts to remove them and take their lands.Frances Slo [...]

    20. Mary on said:

      This was one of the best books I have ever read as was Follow the River by the same author.This book is beautifully written especially the geographic descriptions of America around the time of the American Revolution and the descriptions of the life and ways of native Americans the Delaware tribe in particular at the time.I learned quite a bit about the challenges and differences of opinion the Delaware, Miami and other tribes of northern Ohio and Indiana had on how to best deal with the invasio [...]

      The time November 1778The place Valley of the Susquehanna, PennsylvaniaThe action Five year old Frances Slocum, a Quaker, is kidnapped by three Delaware warriors.What follows an account of Frances s life, as she grows up with various tribes Occasionally, readers get a glimpse of the Slocum family and their never ending quest to find Frances.I really do not have anything nice to say about this novel The story is boring, the characterizations are flimsy, and the writing is poor How does the author [...]

    22. Eric on said:

      A fictionalized biography of a young white girl kidnapped by indians in a pre revolutionary war raid, and raised to become totally culturally absorbed by her tribe So much so, that when later located by her birth family, she had forgotten English, and refused to go back to the white culture at all As well researched as can be possible, given that she left nothing behind in writing, but sometimes the necessary speculation about what she did and what she thought is necessarily a bit over contrived [...]

    23. Susan Poling on said:

      I seem to be on a Native American Kidnapping binge This is the 2nd true story of a woman being kidnapped from her home However, this book is about a 5 year old being kidnapped and taken to an indian woman to replace her own child who was killed by the white people This is not the epic journey of a woman escaping from indians Follow the River , but of a girl who becomes fully integrated into the indian community It is also a history of the horror suffered by the Native Americans as they are force [...]

    24. Lisa Vincent on said:

      The fact that it was a true story made it much interesting I learned that my Great Grandmother had read this book, as did my Grandmother and mother That this author was a favorite of hers So of course I had to read it too I have read one other book by Thom Follow the River That was years ago when I was a young teenager An important highlight was to find out that there are two state parks named after the main character who was kidnapped from her home by Indians Her family never gave up looking f [...]

      The Slocum family of Northeastern Pennsylvania are the best of the white settlers, peace loving Quakers who believe that the Indians hold the Light of God inside It is from this good hearted family that Frances is abducted during the Revolutionary war.As the child s terror subsides, she is slowly drawn into the sacred work and beliefs of her adoptive mother and of all the women of these Eastern tribes Frances becomes Maconakwa, the Little Bear Woman of the Miami Indians.I picked this book becaus [...]

    26. Dale on said:

      This is one great book.The Red Heart is based on the true story of Francis Slocum, a 4 year old Quaker girl who was kidnapped by Delaware Indians in the 1770s on the Pennsylvania frontier near Wilkes Barre There are recreation areas named for her in both Pennsylvania and Indiana It is also the story of her family s 60 year search for her across the Midwest and even into Canada.It is also the story of the relentless American westward movement and how the Indians dealt with it.The reader also gets [...]

    27. Sandra on said:

      A book full of fact than fiction, the story of a young girl who becomes captive by the Shawnee and grows up as Indian This book interweaves Indian culture and the clash between the American, French and the British soldiers but explains the little known Indian culture with living, s, respect for animals, nature and the spirit world Again, Thom is a great story teller and has caught the details of this young girl s life and travails and is another not to be missed absorbing, compelling true life [...]

    28. Shirley on said:

      Well researched and well written fictional interpretation of the life of Frances Slocum, who was abducted by Delaware Indians at age 5 in the late 1700 s She spent the rest of her fairly long life traveling and living with several tribes from Pennsylvania to New York, and finally to Indiana Mr Thom writes with much sympathy for the plight of the Indians as they were forced out of their lands by the U.S Government and white settlers.

    29. Lisa4piano Brown on said:

      I really liked this book LOTS of info on the American Indian culture It was just a little long winded and I admit to skimming a little, but not much It s a true story about little old Wilkes Barre, PA where I am living now and there is a park here named Frances Slocum State Park I just never knew she was taken by Indiansfascinating.

    30. Teresa on said:

      Another superb Thom book A fictionalized account of the true life Francis Frannie Slocum, this is a wonderful look into the life of Native Americans and Frannie from right around the Revolutionary War to the mid 1800 s.Being trapped in Thom Land, I m moving along to another of his titles right away I think my horror thriller pile is very dusty
