The Story of Mary Draper Ingles and son, Thomas Ingles
by John Ingles, Sr.
This small but important book contains the story of the Draper family's settling of Western Virginia, and especially the story of the abduction of Mary Draper Ingles and her two sons, as told to author John Ingles by his mother, Mary Ingles.

Anyone familiar with the heroic feats of Mary Ingles will enjoy reading this author's account of his mother's escape from Indian captivity.
