Summary:
In the late-17th century, as white settlers in the New World pushed further and further west, Native Americans suddenly found themselves fighting for both their territory and their lives.

When these white settlers began encroaching on Native American land, they immediately became prime targets in the tribal "adoption" process, wherein the lost member of a tribe would be replaced with a captive. In this mesmerizing program, discover the compelling stories of those settlers who were taken captive, adopted into a tribe, and lived to write about their experiences. In dramatic reenactments, see why so many of the white victims willingly chose to remain with their captors, ultimately refusing to return to civilian life.

THE HISTORY CHANNEL presents this in-depth look into the fascinating and poignant history of life on the American frontier.

DVD Features: Interactive Menus; Scene Selection

[NOTE - Portraits include Oliver Spencer, a young boy who was eventually ransomed back to his white family, James Smith who lived with his adopted Native American family for 5 years, before returning to become a scout for the American Military, and Mary Jemison, a young girl who spent the rest of her life with her adopted family, married twice to prominent chiefs and bearing 8 children. She died at age 91.]
