Saint Isaac Jogues by Martin J. Scott
Isaac Jogues and his fellow Jesuits were some of the earliest missionaries to the new world. Jogues life story tells much of the condition of the native Americans at the time of their first encounter with white men, and of the stunning bravery and dedication of the early missionaries. Isaac was tortured by the Iroquois but forgave his tormentors and returned to preach only to die a martyr.
