I doubt it in many cases. Life was tough for everyone back then, not just the Indians. The whites on the frontier lived short hard lives for the most part, scratching to make a living. I would think that the life among the Indians, as long as you were not a mistreated slave of the Indians, would be preferable or at least equal in the minds of the captured women.
