Amongst God’s Own

Amongst God’s Own, the Enduring Legacy of St. Mary’s Mission

A book by Terry Glavin & former students of St. Mary’s. The story of St. Mary’s Mission on the Fraser River is an insightful and readable account of the integral relationships that shaped its history. One of Canada’s foremost non-fiction writers, Glavin has woven a highly charged narrative around the words of former students and archival photographs to produce a veracious and timeless book.
