Feathers In The Wind, the story of Olive Oatman, is based on fact and is true to her life. She and her family appeared in the West at a time and the white man and the Indians were engaged in mortal combat. The white man was determined to tame and settle the Western wilderness and the Indians fought to keep their homelands. Olive and her sister were taken captive by the Apaches. Her family, including the other children were murdered and left for dead. Lorenzo survived and never lost hope that his sisters were alive. With Lorenzo's help, Olive's reentry into white society was made easier. Shortly after Olive returned to civilization a clergy man, Reverend R. B. Stratton, wrote a book about Olive's experiences in captivity. He and his wife befriended Olive and Lorenzo, gave them a home and assisted them in furthering their education. In Arizona today, a town in the Black Mountains has been named Oatman in remembrance of Olive. Not far from this town, Olive spent four years with the Mohave Indians as their slave.
