Then comes an attack by renegade Indians ….

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Sheila Anderson
Considering that Morris has written more than thirty novels and has a strong following with historical Christian fiction readers, public libraries will be collecting this title with little question. It might be good to know that this first installation of the Spirit of the Appalachia series also is a good read. Broken into four parts, the story takes place between 1755 and 1770. The only pity is that the first part, "Hawk," is the worst. After the death of his wife during childbirth, Jehosaphat Spencer loses his faith-which also happens to be the name of his new wife-and leaves Williamsburg to wander the frontier. A rival, driven by a motive that is weak at best, attacks him and leaves him for dead. Cherokee Indians who have accepted the Christian faith take Spencer in, nurse him back to health, and teach him the ways of the Native Americans. Spencer, now named Hawk by the Indians, and his Indian brother Sequatchie get caught up in the French and Indian War and the defense of an English fort. Their story continues and becomes more interesting in Part 2, "Elizabeth." Daughter of a wealthy Boston businessman, Elizabeth Martin marries Patrick MacNeal, a Scottish immigrant who Elizabeth's family thinks is far beneath her station. MacNeal is accused of embezzlement from the family company, but he disproves the accusations. Although the family has seen the error of their mistrust, Patrick moves his family to the frontier in a wagon train guided by Hawk Spencer and Sequatchie. Part 3, "Westward Journey," and Part 4, "As the Deer," complete the predictable but still enjoyable journey west. Still plagued by his rival, Hawk manages to lead the settlers to their new land. Not everyone survives, and those who do must cut a new life out of a harsh wilderness. The plot offers few surprises and in that regard is more like a hug from an old friend than a cold stranger. The historical context is poorly woven into the rest of the text, but accurate. The Christian theme is the strongest aspect of this novel and is what readers who pick it up will be seeking. VOYA Codes: 3Q 2P M (Readable without serious defects, For the YA with a special interest in the subject, Middle School-defined as grades 6 to 8).

    Hawk In The Misty Mountains

    The Cherokee Indians gave him his name ¿Hawk.¿ He had lost his wife and set out to Tennessee where the Cherokees found him. They nursed him to health and he lived with them learning their ways. He guides a wagon train west and meets Elizabeth. The story could have moved faster and the unexpected is always nice. Ruth Thompson author of ¿The Bluegrass Dream¿ and ¿Natchez Above The River¿
