Drums Of Change
Full Product Description
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?

Drums of ChangeMary Bartholomew, via The Good Book Stall
I got emotionally involved with this story of a young American Indian girl growing up in a traditional way with her group of the nomadic Blackfoot tribe. The time is the eighteen seventies; already the coming of the white man has brought diseases that have decimated the tribes, and strong liquor to make things worse. Now the Mounted Police have come to establish order and as the buffalo on which the tribes depended are wiped out, treaties give the Indians reserves which they can call their own. This still means a complete change to their way of life and into this situation comes a young missionary totally committed to helping ‘his’ adopted people. The young girl, Running Fawn, is sent away to a missionary school with the son of her chief, to learn the white man’s knowledge, to take back to their people. As the story progressed I felt disturbed by all the suffering that resulted from the white man’s coming and delighted that the story has a happy ending.
