Metipom's Hostage  (1921) 
by Ralph Henry Barbour
Illustrated by Remington Schuyler. “Being a narrative of certain surprising adventures befalling one David Lindall in the first year of King Philip’s War.”

[David is held as hostage as ransom for their sachem's son who was arrested.] "But our hero is not the type to remain quiet, when he is captured. … How he meets these various ways of the red man is told by Mr. Barbour with much vigor. The author handles an Indian as well as, in a college story, he handled bat and football. And he seems to know the rule of the Indian warfare as accurately as he does the warfare of the gridiron. —from a review in the "New Books for Young folks" section of The Literary Digest, November 1921.
