Katanaquat, known as the Rain from God, is a proud warrior of the Narragansett tribe. He lives according to the Narragansett traditions, taking more than one wife and believing in many gods. However, the changes occurring in 17th-century America threaten his way of life. At first, Katanaquat is resentful of the encroachments being made upon his people by the British colonists, but he alters his opinion upon meeting preacher Roger Williams. Introduced to a different way of life, Katanaquat converts to Christianity and becomes known as Jacob. Ammerman's deft way with characterization makes Katanaquat come alive. The portrayal of Native American life is assured and believable, making this first novel a solid glimpse into a rarely portrayed aspect of American history.
