Follow the River

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: James Alexander Thom

Narrated By: David Drummond

Publisher: Tantor Media

Date: December 2010

Duration: 16 hours 0 minutes


Mary Ingles was twenty-three, happily married, and pregnant with her third child when Shawnee Indians invaded her peaceful Virginia settlement in 1755 and kidnapped her, leaving behind a bloody massacre. For months they held her captive. But nothing could imprison her spirit.

With the rushing Ohio River as her guide, Mary Ingles walked one thousand miles through an untamed wilderness no white woman had ever seen. Her story lives on-extraordinary testimony to the indomitable strength of one pioneer woman who risked her life to return to her own people.

    A fabulous story and very well narrated. I did find it drawn out at times, but it didn’t diminish the enjoyment and I found myself listening to it at every opportunity. The bonus of it a true story, made it even more amazing.

  • Estelle Philp

    Absolutely brilliant. Addictive. Stayed up late again and again listening to it. The narrator was so good that I forgot it was being narrated. Would love to listen to another of his. The story was fascinating.
