Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
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.

    I Also Recommend:

    Don't underestimate this book.

    I wanted to read this book because I had read on the back of the book that the author was descended from Roger Williams. I thought that fact might make the book a little bit different from others. So although I generally don't go into stories about Indians and so forth, I gave it a try. Don't underestimate this book. I wasn't too thrilled to start it because the cover didn't give me the impression of anything too serious, but I was wrong. The story is of the arrival of the first white man in New England, the Pilgrims, and King Philip's War, told from the point of view of an Indian. But the main story is of God's love for the Indians, and His wooing them to Him through Christians like the Pilgrims, Roger Williams and others. I found certain subtle details the author thoughtfully related through the tale most interesting. For example: the difference between how the Indians treated their wives, and the Pilgrim's treatment of women. How the Pilgrims bought land from the Indians, treated them as equals, and formed alliances with them, sticking up for one another if attacked by other tribes (contrary to many widespread myths and lies about the Pilgrims believed today). Also, how the Indians won over to Christ settled down and became civilized, even building architecturally sound bridges and so forth where there hadn't been any attempt before. The narrative, since told from the point of view of an Indian, is a very unique writing style-- illustratively poetic. At first this was a little laborious, but after I got used to it, I learned to appreciate the talent of the author. Scenes that stuck out to me: The Song on the Wind was one of my favorite parts in the story, and when you get to the end where the author has an index and historical tidbits, you find that this event really did happen. The chapter where Katanaquat is escaping from Uncas near his lone fort in the woods, bloodied and bruised and laying with his face in the mud "like a slug drying in the sun" will stick in my mind for a long time. I love how the Gospel is explained. As a Christian, you get used to hearing the Message over and over again. But this presented it in a whole new light and it was refreshing. I can't say that I thought the book was 'exciting.' I felt that some parts in the story lagged, (esp. the beginning), but I encourage people to persevere-- you won't regret finishing it. I recommend this book for fellow Christians: you will see the love of God in a sweet and powerful way. I invite non-Christians to read this book: maybe you will hear God calling your name, like Katanaquat did.

    Unique Historical Fiction Experience!

    This book was an exciting and intellectually stimulating read. Most enjoyable was the way the story was presented: first person from a Native American's point of view--the reader got an idea of how the Native American thought and expressed himself. The author has done a superb job of creating this story.
