Author Jack Casey talked about his book Lily of the Mohawks, in which he chronicles the life of Kateri Tekakwitha, a Mohawk woman who survived smallpox, lost her family to the disease, and was eventually baptized as a Roman Catholic. The book was re-released after Tekakwitha became the first-ever Native American Catholic saint in October 2012.
