Book - The Boy Captives
This book has been in continuous print since first published in 1927.
True narrative of the only known brothers, Clinton L. Smith and Jefferson Davis Smith, to survive the hardships of captivity by hostile Indians. Undistorted by interpretation. Unfolds in diary-like fashion as if the author were speaking to you in person.
After describing the life of the author's Texas pioneer family, the story explodes with the gut-wrenching incident of the Smith boys' capture, their induction and indoctrination into the Indian tribe and life, and the purchase of one brother by Geronimo.
Unforgettable insight into Indian life....and death, including Indian raids, battles, war dances and hunting adventures.
Henry Smith, Father of Clint and Jeff, was a City Marshal in San Antonio prior to joining the Texas Rangers in 1861.
Book is signature stamped "Best Wishes, Allen Smith, Jr., Grandson of Clinton L. Smith" and sent to us directly from the great-granddaughter of the author.
This book is very easy to read and is thoroughly enjoyed by adults and children alike.
