When I was a little boy, I would often visit my grandparents who lived along the banks of the St. Lawrence River in Lachine, Canada. Not too far down but on the exact opposite side of the river was Kahnawake, now present day Caughnawaga, the place where some of St. Kateri Tekakwitha’s relics are stored. Often, especially during summer vacations, my family and I would visit-in a tourist capacity-the Native Americans of that area, specifically the Mohawk tribe who had, as I recall, a visitor’s center and taught the visitors about their traditions and ways of life, from the times past up to the present. I always marveled at their oral traditions, being wowed into a kind of awe concerning their spiritual storytelling ability. One case in particular was of a holy woman named Kateri who had just recently been beatified by now Pope St. John Paul the II. While I was not Catholic nor even baptized at the time, the significance of her story was rather over my little boy’s head, for I was more interested in the storytelling, assorted dances and Native American dress than I was in anything else. Yet, whenever I would go out for walk with my dad or some family member along the St. Lawrence, I always knew that there was a holy woman, whose name I could not pronounce, whose presence was not too far from the homestead of my grandparents, and I always felt an inexplicable sense of security in knowing that.

The setup of the book is really twofold, the first part being an in-depth history into the early development of Canada or rather “New France” as well as a history of the Native American settlers who inhabited the wild terrain.

I brought this book because I go to Saint Kateri Tekakwitha parish and we just celebrated the canonization of this blessed Saint. I wanted to learn a little more about her life and this book was just what I was looking for. :)

Best bio of Saint Kateri I have found. Give historical setting for her time and an explanation historically why it took 300 years to be brought forward for sainthood. Text includes writings of the actual priest who knew Kateri. You truly get a sense she was a mystic and all consumed by the love of God.

It was a tough read, but gave good historical background. I was expecting to read about St. Kateri when I opened the book, but from Chapter one to page 80 she is hardly mentioned. I ended up skipping a few of the bigger background chapters because they were unnecessary. Overall it was a good book. Not a very good spiritual read, but a decent historical one. I recommend this book to anyone who knows nothing about the colonization of America and St. Kateri as a starter book. If you know a fair amount of either; don't read it.

The authors gave me a deeper insight into this incredible woman. St. Kateri can rightly be called the patron saint of the bullied. Good lesson here for today's teens--and anyone else who feels put down for practicing their faith.

The Bunson book includes what little is known about Kateri Takawitha. We have used it to discuss Native American Culture, the Jesuit invasion of French America, the Iroquois Confederacy and their relation with the French, the British and especially the Hurons. It lacks bibliography.

For a historian minded person, excellent. Inspirational, somewhat. Difficult to read. I look for something more moving. Not recommended for average reader. Fr. Leon Kerschen
