    Note Relating to Cather: Marie de l'Incarnation (1599-1672) was one of the first female missionaries in the New World; she came to Quebec in 1639. The epigraph to Shadows on the Rock is from a letter to one of her sisters: "You ask me for some flower seeds from this country. We have them sent from France for our garden, as those here are neither very rare nor very beautiful. Everything is wild here, the flowers as well as the men."
