I received this as a Christmas gift from my boyfriend, who knows how much I have been wanting to read a biography of Kateri Tekawitha. This is not a very long book. It's an easy read, but well-written and it is a brief, but still informative biography of Saint Kateri for those interested in learning more about her life.It's a good starter biography about Kateri Tekakwitha. At the end, the book also has the miracles that are contributed to Kateri and those were interesting to read. The pictures throughout the biography were also quite beautiful. Some were of Kateri statues, others were pictures of the woods, Native homes and other things.Although it was a short read, I really did enjoy this book. I am also just very happy that Kateri Tekakwitha is now a Saint. I think it is long overdue.
