Through its graphic portrayal the life of Religious in pioneer days, not only in Indiana, but also of the Midwest, comes to life with clarity and vigor.The narrative of the first voyage is told with keen observation and penetrating comment; the tale of the shipwreck in the second voyage proceeds with dramatic swiftness and intensity; the journey overland from New York through Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Frederick to Wheeling from which point the boat trip down the Ohio begins, has realistic touches which give it form and life; the privations of the Sisters endured in founding a Congregation and a College in the wilderness; the courage of the Sisters under almost incredible misunderstandings -- all are told without any pleading for sympathy, but with a directness and a simplicity that are the best guarantee of truth."...

    I'm horribly biased, but this is one of my all-time favorite books. Whenever I read it (I have read it many times), I am always so amazed by the politics Mother Theodore endured and how much drama there was going on in little ol' Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana. I amazes me, too, that English was not her native language, but she wrote quite well in English.

    It's awesome to have this in ebook form and be able to search it. This book is the unofficial other Bible of the Sisters of Providence, and now it's way more usable. I like that older eyes can enlarge it as much as they want too!
