Inhaltsangabe: She had known only contentment, but now her hopes and dreams were facing the-Drums, of Change
Running Fawn loved her place of birth, the site of the Blackfoot tribe's winter camp, more than words could express. The stillness of the mountain, the giant spruce and pine that covered the hillsides, the call of the loon on the lake, and the gurgle of the spring that squeezed its crystal water from the rock crevice she couldn't even imagine a different kind of life. This was her home.
But the coming of white men with their guns and diseases, the prairie fires that swept the grazing lands, and the quick slaughter of the vast buffalo herds leave her Blackfoot tribe with little choice but to take up residence on the assigned Reserve. All too soon, the world that Running Fawn has cherished is left behind.
The chief's son, Silver Fox, and Running Fawn are chosen to attend classes at the Mission Boarding School in Calgary. How can she adjust to the strange new world? To the loneliness in this place far from her home and family? And how should she respond when Silver Fox shows more than a passing interest in the white man's God and in her?
The stillness of the mountains, the pines covering the hillsides, the gurgle of the spring... this was her home
The prairie fires that sweep the grazing lands, the coming of white men with their guns and diseases, and the quick slaughter of the vast buffalo herds leave Running Fawn's Blackfoot tribe with little choice but to take up residence on the assigned Reserve. All her life, Running Fawn has known only contentment, but now what will become of her hopes and dreams?
The Chief's son, Silver Fox, and Running Fawn are chosen to attend classes at the Mission Boarding School in Calgary. The white man's way of life isn't the only thing confusing to Running Fawn; the white man's God both frightens and intrigues her. Could this God indeed be the creator of the land she loves so dearly? Will she be forced to choose between the ways of her people and the man she loves?
