THE ADVENTURES OF MEN OF MARYKNOLL

A Maryknoll missioner himself, Father Nevins here gathers together a variety of true stories of adventures experienced by American Catholic missionaries of the Society of Maryknoll, in China, Japan, parts of Africa and of Central and South America, in the course of missionary labors. The emphasis is on heroic projects, perilous exploits and strange customs, calculated to interest the youthful reader. The tales are told in a context that serves simultaneously to inspire admiration and possible emulation in the future through the self-sacrificing and apostolic men whose accomplishments, experiences and sufferings are here described. Each of the fifteen chapters is devoted to a different adventure, set in a different locale, recounted in swift narrative journalistic style.
