True story of murder, captivity, revenge, and escape, set against the fiery backdrop of the French and Indian war. Examines the period in American history when French Catholicism vied for control of the frontier with English Protestantism, and the bloody deeds of Hannah Duston--who escaped her Native American captors and returned to her settlement of Haverhill, Massachusetts, with a collection of scalps--passed into legend
