Along with dramatic full color illustrations, Father Damien tells the story of the famous missionary, from his boyhood in Belgium to his selfless work with children and adults afflicted with leprosy. Set against the colorful backdrop of the leper colony at Molokai in the Hawaiian islands, the book introduces young readers to one of history's heroes, a man who built over 300 houses, a church, a hospital, and two orphanages, and who eventually contracted leprosy himself. Not just intended for those interested in religion, Father Damien gives young readers a way to think about how people treat each other and what it means to be a human being.
