A True Story of Abduction by the Indians on the Texas Frontier
On New Year's Day 1870, ten-year-old Adolph Korn was kidnapped by Plains Indians. For three years, he thrived on their rough, nomadic existence, becoming a fierce warrior. Never readjusting to white society, he spent his last years in a cave, all but forgotten by his family. That is, until Scott Zesch stumbled over his great-great-great uncle's grave. Determined to understand how a timid farm boy could have become so Indianized, Zesch traveled across the West, digging through archives, speaking with Comanche elders, and tracking eight other child captives with hauntingly similar experiences.
