Many artists - literary as well as visual - have considered the life of Francis of Assisi, but none until now has presented Francis himself from a first-person perspective.
Prompted by the question of what it would have been like to be Francis, artist Kathleen Fruge-Brown chose seven scenes from Francis's life, including giving alms to a leper, renouncing material possessions, cutting Clare's hair, building a snow-family, receiving the stigmata, composing "The Canticle of the Sun," and dying. A common viewpoint unites the seven images: in each the viewer sees the scene as if through Francis's eyes.
The accompanying text - one chapter per image - is also from a first-person perspective, with a voice that reveals as much about the man as do the stories he tells.

Lauren Glen Dunlap is a Seattle-based writer and editor. She writes regularly for the Women's Review of Books, the Seattle Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, and Belles Lettres.Kathleen Frugé-Brown teaches drawing, painting, and design at Bellevue Community College in Seattle and has exhibited in Italy, Canada, and the United States.From Publishers Weekly:
While much has been written about St. Francis, Dunlap and Fruge-Brown have combined their talents to bring forth one of the most breathtaking books on the subject. Through both paintings and words, writer Dunlop and illustrator Fruge-Brown allow Francis to "share" his own stories through his eyes and narration. The device works. The book is divided into seven chapters, each with an illustration and story from a part of Francis's life?giving the leper alms, renouncing his material possessions, cutting St. Clare's hair, receiving the stigmata. Dunlap notes, in an afterword, that her text was inspired by Fruge-Brown's powerful illustrations of Francis's life. The artwork is strong, conveying a sense of the mystical, making for a beautiful book that will remain for a long, long time in the minds and hearts of readers.
