Book Overview

Over three hundred years ago, many Frenchmen came to the unknown forests along the St. Lawrence River. Most of them came in search of furs and wealth. But there were some--a handful of Jesuit missionaries--who came not to get, but to give. They wished to give the savage Indians the knowledge of God and of His love for them.

Kids Will Love This Book!

This is an exciting book for kids wanting to learn about St. Isaac Jogues, a Jesuit missionary . In this book you will travel with Pére Isaac (as he was called by the French) on his adventure sharing the Word of God with the Indians. He was born in France to a comfortable life. As a young boy he heard stories of the New World, and decided he wanted to become a missionary to the Indians. He arrived in Quebec in 1626 and served as a missionary to the Huron Indians. While traveling with them, he was captured by the fierce Iriquois and tortured and held as a prisoner. He later escaped and returned to France, but he did not wish to remain there. So he returned once again to minister to the Indians and died as a martyr. The Indians called St. Isaac "Ondessonk" meaning "bird of prey" because of his piercing eyes and quick movements. This book contains a lot of interesting facts about the Indians and their culture: such as how they made canoes, how they lived, and what they ate. This is truly a fascinating book for kids that I am sure they will enjoy.

Great book written on St. Isaac

St. Isaac is an amazing saint that went to Canada to preach to the Indians in the 1600s. He had many struggles and was later killed by the Iroquois Indians. He had many adventures while in Canada, and his life will be an amazing message for ages to come. This book is a great and easy way to learn about the saint. Children as young as 10 should be able to read this, and it is an exciting story. I recommend this book for everyone! What a great way to increase in your faith!!!
