Boniface (born 1880) joined the Franciscans in 1902 entering the monastery novitiate in Amiens, France. Consecrated a priest in 1908 at the cathedral church in Quebec City, he left shortly afterwards for the "Golden West" serving mainly in that part of Alberta north of Edmonton and in the vicinity of the North Saskatchewan River. Illustrated with many black and white photographs with a short chronology of the development of the Franciscan Order in the West and a listing of Franciscans, both priests and lay brothers, in the West as of 1907. The library markings are an accession number in black on the lower spine, attachments on the front free end paper and the back paste down end paper along with the library name stamped on the tail edge of the text block. The book has mild wear to the spine tips, is otherwise clean with a sound binding. A clear and removable archival cover has been fitted.
