Helen Walker Homan contributes her third volume to the Vision Books series of saints for youth in this story of the life of the greatly beloved St. Anthony of Padua.
Homan covers many of the important and exciting events in Friar Anthony's life including a voyage to the Mohammedan land of Morocco, a shipwreck, and the meeting in Assisi with St. Francis and all of the Friars Minor. From his days as a youth to the dramatic accounts of his powerful preaching and working miracles as a follower of St. Francis, Homan presents a fascinating account of St. Anthony that youth, and all ages, will find enthralling.
"A series which should be found wherever there are young Catholic readers."
"Parents will not have to wonder why Johnny won't read if these Vision Books are made available to their children . . . Splendid in design and format . . ."
- Catholic Standard and Times
"The entire series of Vision Books is recommended for solid training for youth."
