Saints of the American Wilderness

SKU: 8090  |  ISBN: 0001928832903

Based upon the letters and reports written by the Jesuit missionaries themselves: the famous Jesuit Relations written between 1610 and 1672, which were published in a series of 73 volumes. In their day, the missionaries' letters were the most powerful means of attracting new workers to the harvest. Nineteenth century American historian Francis Parkman could scarcely lay down a volume of the Relations once he had taken it up. A work worthy of its subject: the Jesuit North American martyrs.

258 pp. Softcover.
