      From www.ignatius.com --
      This 25th volume in the acclaimed Vision Books series of saints’ lives for
      youth 9-15 years old is the story of the saintly Fr. Damien, who in 1872 went to
      the island of Molokai, where lepers had been exiled to live in miserable
      surroundings. Damien earned the trust of the lepers, and his appeals for help
      resonated throughout the world. He spent his life caring for all the needs of the
      outcast lepers, and even after Damien himself contracted leprosy he carried on
      working for his “fellow lepers” to the end. Illustrated
