Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0972942793, Hardcover)

Travel through history with the Trappist monks of Spencer as they carry their faith from Napoleon's Europe to the wilds of Nova Scotia, the woods and pastures of New England, the mountains of Colorado and the new frontiers of South America. The fascinating story of this monastic community tells both of hardships and triumphs as generation after generation strives to maintain a life dedicated to prayer, work and contemplation. Thoroughly researched and lovingly told, THROUGH FAITH & FIRE, offers lay readers a unique insight into monastic life and gives a more informed audience the complete picture of Spencer's intriguing history. The story's protagonists speak for themselves through extensive quotations from correspondence dating back to the early years of the 19th century, along with maps, paintings and historical photographs.
