mindy kreilein5 Stars Out Of 5September 30, 2008mindy kreileinYoung-Wolf doesnt like intruders, and English missionary Samuel Kirkland is not an exception to the rule. While visiting the Seneca in Ganundasaga during a famine year, Samuel Kirkland runs into Young-Wolf when he becomes part of the young mans family during his stay. While visiting, his life is put in danger, but will Young-Wolf step in and help? The author, Denise Williamson, did a wonderful job at bringing this true story to life for her young readers. The characters were well developed and resembled the real-life story of Samuel Kirkland. I felt that the dialogue was believable, as well as the plot, simply because it sounded like a conversation that would have happened. The book does contain pictures, which I feel are appropriate to the story in giving a visual picture of the ongoing action. I enjoyed this book because of the history it portrayed, and thought it was worth reading, if only for the historical information.
