In 1758, a Shawnee raiding party attacked a white family in Pennsylvania. Only one member of the family survived — 16-year-old Mary Jemison. She was adopted into the Seneca tribe, and lived the rest of her life among American Indians. Deborah Larsen took this true story as inspiration for her acclaimed debut novel, "The White" (Knopf).
