In 1884, the nuns of the Ursuline order left their Toledo home for the plains and mountains of Montana with hopes of bringing Native Americans into their religion. Drawing on journals, letters, and other archival material, Lady Blackrobes relates the nuns' diligent efforts to fulfill their mission in the face of hardship while providing a critical look at the mission's negative impact on Native culture.
