The Dangers and Sufferings of Robert Eastburn, and His Deliverance from Indian Capitivity - John R. Spears. From the original title page: “A Faithful Narrative of the many Dangers and Sufferings, as well as wonderful Deliverances of Robert Eastburn, during his late Captivity among the Indians: Together with some Remarks upon the Country of Canada, and the Religion, and Policy of Its Inhabitants; the whole intermixed with devout Reflections.”

From the Introduction: “Robert Eastburn, whose Faithful Narrative is one of the valuable, because one of the undoubted, original authorities relating to the war that destroyed the French power in North America, was captured by the force of French soldiers and Indians on a wagon road that crossed the divide between the Mohawk River and Wood Creek, just north of the modern city of Rome, New York. He was carried thence to Canada, where he was adopted into an Indian family, and where he remained, part of the time with the Indians, and a part with the French, for something less than two years.”
