I read this one a few years ago and would recommend it. Fascinating historical novel of a priest among the Native Americans in what is now Canada.

Black Robe
Author: Brian Moore

His name is Father Laforgue, a young Jesuit missionary come from Europe to the New World to bring the word of God to the heathen. He is given minimal aid by the governor of the vast territory that is proudly named New France but is in reality still ruled by the Huron, Iroquois, and Algonkin tribes who have roamed it since the dawn of time and whom the French call savages. His mission is to reach and bring salvation to an isolated Huron tribe decimated by disease in the far North before incoming winter closes off his path to them. His guides are a group of Savages who mock his faith and their pledges even as they accept muskets as their payment.
