Book Overview

No difficulty could stop this heroic Jesuit priest. Father Isaac's greatest desire was to bring Jesus to the Native Americans he encountered in the wilderness of the New World. After being ordained to the priesthood, he was sent to Quebec, Canada to be a missionary to the Huron Indians. Working among the native populations in North America, he revealed the Good News.

Fascinating and inspiring adventure story

I read this book to my three boys. We all were on the edges of our seats. What an incredible adventure story - from living with the Huron and being captured by the Iroquois, a daring escape, 17th century cross-seas travel, pirate attacks, horse-rides across France, this story has it all. What an inspiring saint. You do feel his burning heart for Christ. This story is guaranteed to negate any self-pity, as well as inspire gratitude for readily available sacraments. I recommend it to parents and children alike.
