Ambushed in the wilderness along with French missionaries, this early pioneer in America survived torture and captivity to become an esteemed advisor to the much-feared Mohawks and other Iroquois nations.

    A concise and interesting historical biography that documents the relatively unknown story of Guillaume Couture, who travels to the New World and despite capture and physical hardship chooses to remain, using his skills to promote peace between the Indigenous Peoples and Europeans. Enlightening read.
