Join the Vision Books series in this inspiring biography of Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, a courageous and devoted young Indian woman who lived in the 1600s and affectionately known as the "Lily of the Mohawks. This book tells the remarkable story of Kateri's life, from her conversion to Christianity by French missionaries to her eventual canonization as a saint.

Born in what is now New York state, Kateri's early life was marked by tragedy and loss. After her mother's conversion to Christianity, Kateri's family was ravaged by smallpox, leaving her an orphan. She was taken in by a chief who was fiercely anti-Christian, making it difficult for Kateri to pursue her faith.

Despite these challenges, Kateri's devotion to God only grew stronger. She was eventually baptized and converted by the missionaries, but this decision came at a great cost. Kateri was ostracized by her tribe and forced to live in exile. With the help of a priest, she made a daring escape to live a life dedicated to God.

This book is a testament to Kateri's unwavering faith and her determination to follow her calling. Although she was denied her desire to become a nun, Kateri chose instead to live a life of simplicity and devotion, offering her sufferings and life to Christ. Her story is a powerful reminder of the importance of faith and perseverance in the face of adversity.
