Drums of change : the story of Running Fawn
Janette Oke
Adult Fiction OKE

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Library Journal:

In mid-19th-century Alberta, young Running Fawn's world of beauty and serenity is disrupted by the violence of white settlers stealing Blackfoot lands and by the increasing harshness of life on assigned reservations. Although Running Fawn slowly resigns herself to life on the reservation, she struggles fiercely with the strange beliefs of the Christian missionary who has come to live and teach among her tribe. Because of the strength of Running Fawn's convictions about the corrupt nature of the settlers and Christianity, her final conversion rings false. Still, Oke (The Red Geranium, LJ 11/1/95) combines the panorama of Alberta's history with the typical, gentle simplicity of her storytelling to fashion a tale that will be popular among her many fans.
