Denise Williamson’s historical fiction book River of Danger features missionary Samuel Kirkland who came to live with the Seneca Indians in the late 1700s. Young-Wolf is certain that the Englishman wants to steal from his people or to destroy their way of life. He thinks the stories that Kirkland tells of Hawenio, the Great Good Voice, must be lies intended to trick the Seneca into doing the white man’s will. Young-Wolf hopes to join an elite band of fighters led by the tribe’s chief warrior, Captain, and to spy on Kirkland until he finds some fault worthy of death. In this Christian fiction book, as Young-Wolf watches and waits, he begins to wonder whether Samuel Kirkland’s stories about God are really true.
