395 pages. Hardcover, no dustjacket. Good condition but dustjacket is worn. BIOGRAPHY. Excepting the Jesuit martyrs of North America, Saints Isaac Jogues, Jean de Brebeuf, and their companions, no seventeenth-century Jesuit missionary's name is so well-known in the United States as that of Father Jacquetter. Though he has been honored by having his name attached to cities, rivers, business firms, colleges, universities, and high schools, up to the present no solidly scholarly biography has been published in any language. This biography is the result of careful, painstaking investigation of every phase of Father Marquette's brief life of a few days less than thirty-eight years, 1637-1675. For the first time, the reader may learn the accurate details of Marquette's ancestry, his education, the early years of his Jesuit life in France, and the carefully documented history of his missionary career in New France. Includes an Index. (Key Words: Father Jacques Marquettee, Joseph P.
