The cabin door crashes open-and in a few minutes Regina’s life changes forever. Allegheny Indians murder her father and brother, burn their Pennsylvania home to the ground, and take Regina captive. Only her mother, who is away from home, is safe. Torn from her family, Regina longs for the past, but she must begin a new life. She becomes Tskinnak, who learns to catch fish, dance the Indian dance, and speak the Indian tongue. As the years go by, her new people become her family . . . but she never stops wondering about her mother. Will they ever meet again?

“A first-person narrative based on the true story of a young woman held by Indians from 1755-1763, related with all the impact of a hard-hitting documentary . . .Wonderful reading.” (School Library Journal)

I Am Regina is an enthralling and profoundly stirring story, historical fiction for young people at its very finest.” (Elizabeth George Speare, Newbery Award-winning author of The Witch of Blackbird Pond)
