Author Pam Nowak’s masterfully written and researched novel tells the historically true events of five Minnesota frontier women captured by Santee Sioux women during the 1862 Dakota conflict.  Nowak perfectly relates to the reader the tribulations of these amazing women in a way that one feels present during their struggles to survive. 

Never Let Go is the winner of the Will Rogers Medallion Award.  It is a tribute to the human spirit and the resilience of the frontier women who risked everything to raise a family in the wilderness.
