Synopsis: Near Jamestown in 1622, a young English boy and the son of a Powhatan Indian chief find themselves caught up in the growing animosity between their peoples

From School Library Journal: Grade 8-11-- With balance and sensitivity, Ruemmler personalizes and humanizes the circumstances leading up to the 1622 massacre of 300 Jamestown colonists by the Powhatans. His fictional account focuses alternately on a young English colonist, Thomas Spencer, and on a Powhatan youth, Eagle Owl. In three brief encounters, they wrestle over Thomas's bucket of strawberries; both boys declare their unspoken friendship by sketching a symbolic rainbow in the earth; and Eagle Owl defies tribal authority by aiding Thomas's escape from the Indians. They separately experience similar coming-of-age trials in their quest for independence. The parallel worlds and lives of the boys conflict, however, as the Indians grow hostile over the takeover of their lands and the colonists grow possessive of their tobacco crops. Through vivid descriptions, rich in historical detail, Ruemmler evokes early colonial life, Indian lore, and the natural setting of Jamestown. Although lengthy descriptions, gradual plot development, and thematic intensity may discourage some readers, students and teachers of American history and literature will find Smoke on the Water a beautifully written, well researched, and valuable source of information on early America. --Gerry Larson, Chewning Junior High School, Durham, NC
