The story of Aaron Gadd, who in the middle of the 19th century, became a missionary to the Indians and the benighted peoples of the American West. A little more interesting than Lewis' other books of this period. ( )

Story of a young missionary out of New England. Fired by the promptings of his conscience, torn by the insistent demands of the flesh, stimulated by the emotional and intellectual urge of religious fervor, he plas a heroic part in the rugged drama of pioneer life.
Moving among a host of memorable characters meticulously drawn, Aaron Gadd experiences moments of exaltation and despair, of physical violence and spiritual calm, of romantic love and passionate desire. Of the women whose lives touch his, two enchant and trouble him most: Selene, a daughter of an Indian woman and a Scotch fur trader, and Huldah, ardent young missionary.
