The Spirit Keeper is a riveting historical adventure which begins in 1747 when the frontier Pennsylvania home of 17-year-old Katie O’Toole is attacked by Indians. Though Katie longs to return to the civilized comforts of colonial Philadelphia, she suddenly finds herself a captive of strange savages, being carried ever deeper into the wild center of the American continent.
