Father Isaac Jogues, born in Orleans, France, in 1607, was about thirty-five years old when he came to the New World. He had been well educated in France, and was shy and introverted by nature. He was also very devout. When he heard of the Jesuit mission to Canada, he decided not to pursue the literary career that he had been contemplating, and instead offered himself to do whatever work might need to be done. Details on the Iroquois raids and the capture of Father Jogues are presented.
