The Jesuits in North America in the Seventeenth Century


Distinguised by Francis Parkman's pictorial style, THE JESUITS IN NORTH AMERICA opens with the arrival of French missionaries in Canada in 1632. This study clearly portrays intertribal rivalries and tensions between French and English traders. However, the dramatic pulse of Parkman's narrative centers on attempts of the Jesuits to befriend, convert, and mediate between the Indian tribes--resulting in great hardship and sometimes martyrdom for the Jesuits.
