Talk: The Survival of Larcena Pennington

November 15, 2014 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 am

$2 - $7.50

Larcena Pennington Page’s ordeal is certainly one of the greatest survival stories ever told. Twenty-three years old and newly married, she and her 10 year old companion Mercedes Sais Quiroz were kidnapped by Apaches not far from Tubac at their Madera Canyon campsite. After a forced march of 15 miles over the mountains, Larcena could no longer keep up with her captors. They attacked her with lances, pushed her into a ravine and left her for dead. She regained consciousness and began a 15 day heroic struggle back to her husband’s camp. In this illustrated talk, Doug and Ray will take us to the site where Larcena was abandoned, then retrace parts of her survival route using archival photos taken by her son-in-law, Dr. Robert Forbes, and also discuss what later became of her and Mercedes. $7.50 fee includes admission to the Park. Please call 398-2252 to reserve a place.
