The Vision Books for youth nine to fifteen years old are one of the most popular and well-written series of saints' lives ever produced for young people. 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. But here 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. One of these missionaries was Isaac Jogues, martyr and saint. Milton Lomask tells the story of Isaac's dangerous and difficult life among the Indian tribes - of his work of conversion, teaching health rules, and to set them free from their superstitious beliefs. This is the inspiring story of his enslavement by the Mohawks, his daring escape, and finally, his death as a martyr for the faith. Illustrated. 170 pages.
