The book is filled with new beginnings of places where the Capuchins started communities. We are grateful for the foreground of the picture, of course, which shows the figures of the two founders, Fathers Francis Haas and Bonaventure Frey. It is impossible not to be interested in the attractive figures that stand at their side, ever zealous helpmates, ever active workmen whether in the building of new monasteries and hospices, or in the education of the sturdy youth of Wisconsin, or in the training of worthy sons of St. Francis, whether among the redskins or the pale-faces, among the pioneers and farmers of the West or the city dwellers of the East. We admire the same quiet charity, the same unaggressive goodness, the same trust in heaven, the same denial of self, and the same simplicity and honesty.
