Storyline

Mary Ingles is pregnant when she and her two sons are captured from their homestead in Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains by Shawnee Indians. Her husband, Will, narrowly escapes death during the attack. Impressed by her grace under the pressure of captivity, Wildcat, the Shawnee chief, confers special privileges on Mary and her children, eventually proposing that Mary become his mate. Surprised by her attraction to the handsome brave, Mary nonetheless opts to remain faithful to Will and engineers a plan for her escape. Separated from her children, Mary joins another female settler, and together they embark on a harrowing homeward trek. Her odyssey comes full circle more than a decade later when she is finally reunited with her long-lost children. Written by <Goldenshadows@hotmail.com>

Goofs

In the scene in which Mary, Tommy and Betty are welcomed into the lodge with the Shawnee woman, Mary confides that she has little breastmilk for her newborn baby (likely due to malnutrition while in captivity). The woman gives her fennel seeds, which Mary then appears to feed directly to the baby. Seeds of any sort are never safe to feed to an infant. While fennel promotes lactation and eases colic, the best utilization is either the mother eating them or making a tea to give to the baby in very small doses. See more »

Inspiring & Courageous
13 July 1999 | by (California) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite movies to watch. I so admire the main character's, Mary Ingles', courage and perseverance under great trial. I had a chance to read the story of the real Mary Ingles that this was based on, and what an amazing lady she was!

Good performances by Sheryl Lee, Eric Schweig, and Ellen Burstyn. Hallmark told this tale without a lot of violence, no profanity, and no trashy sex. This film is well worth seeing.
