This new edition of John O'Kane Murray's classic work on the French fathers of Canada offers readers concise yet engaging biographies of Samuel de Champlain, St. Isaac Jogues, and St. John de Brebeuf. Murray begins with Champlain's struggles to establish a French colony along the St. Lawrence, tracing the development of the missions of New France through the work of its two most exemplary missionaries, the Jesuits St. Isaac Jogues and John de Brebeuf. Filled with stories of adventure, faith, and martyrdom, John O' Kane Murray's The Father's of New France is a superb introduction to the Catholic luminaries who laid the foundations of Canada.
