This book conveys the richness of the Jesuit heritage in the New England States of Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. It gives the reader a knowledge of the relationship of the Society of Jesus to each of these states by providing information on the people, events, landmarks, historic sites and places of interest, with respect to the Jesuits in New England from 1611, the year when Father Pierre Biard became the first Jesuit to set foot on New England soil to 1976, the year of the bicentennial of the American nation and the fiftieth anniversary of the establishment of the New England Province of the Society of Jesus. The book contains a number of useful appendices that compile information about Jesuits and their works in New England, a bibliographical essay, and an index of persons.
