Based on the true story of the capture and captivity of Mary Neely by Shawnee warriors. Captured in 1780 near Fort Nashborough (now Nashville, TN) Mary was taken hundreds of miles from home, deep into hostile Indian Territory. Renamed "Songbird" for her beautiful voice, she was made a slave to the chieftain's wife. Though she attempted numerous time to escape, she was taken through Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan. She escaped three years later in northern Michigan, only to be captured by the British and held as a prisoner of war. While being transported to Fort Niagara, the ship ran aground in a gale and she escaped again. She traveled alone, on foot, across Canada, into New York and to Fort Pitt (Pittsburgh, PA) before being rescued by an American soldier. This is the story of her capture, captivity, escape, and journey home.
