RANSOM
by Mark Ammerman

Genre: Inspirational, Historical Fiction

RT Rating

Kattenanit, a brave of the 17th century Narragansett tribe, struggles between the call of the One God and the voice of his father Katanaquat (meaning Rain from God), which declares all gods deceitful.

Narragansett law says he must take a scalp before he can take a wife; the One God says he must not kill. Kattenanit wants peace in a world riddled with strife between tribes and between the natives and the invading whites. How will he be seen as a man if he does not walk the warpath?

This poignant, thought-provoking sequel to The Rain From God continues
the saga of a Narragansett family and explores a little-known inroad of the Gospel on this continent. At times,
the poetic prose is a bit disjointed and episodic, but it's always fascinating and
deeply moving. (May, 320 pp., $12.99)
