Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, baptised as Catherine Tekakwitha and informally known as Lily of the Mohawks, is a Roman Catholic saint, who was an Algonquin-Mohawk virgin and religious laywoman. Catherine Tekakwitha's story is surely one of the gems of the early Jesuit mission efforts in New France in the late 1600's. The story told in this book is based on a xerographic photocopy of a type-written transcript of a document -- presumably based on Fr. Cholenec's original Autograph. Thus, the story is told by an eye-witness -- who was her spiritual director -- of the events in her life from the time she arrived at the Jesuit mission just outside of Montreal, known at that time as the Sault Saint-Louis or Saint-Louis Rapids. The English translation is meant to follow the French rather closely, but with an ear to producing an easily readable story in English. Contents include: Maps English version Translator's Preface The Life of Catherine Tekakwitha Preface First Page of Manuscript Book One Book Two Events at her death Book Three Appendices Index of Personal Names
