Monignor Stone is a native of eastern oregon and a lifetime member of the Catholic Church. Born in Athena and raised in The Dalles, his 77 years span over half of the century and half of that time has passed since Bishops Blanchet and Demers offered the first Mass at Fort Walla Walla. Some of the questions Monsignor Stone raises in his book are: Where did the earliest Catholic settlers come from? Why did they locate in the vast desert-like part of Oregon? And how were their religious needs satisfied? We think you will find this an absorbing account of the trials and triumphs they experienced, and hope that you will come away from reading this accountwith a renewed interest and appreciation of your own roots.
