OLD TRAILS AND NEW by Helen Boyd Higgins


Email this review


This collection of stories illustrates the works of itinerant missionary organizations in different parts of this country and at different times. There is a plane-flying preacher who takes a child to the hospital; a Maine missionary group transports a boy by boat to the dentist and provides for his various needs; a mission organization in Connecticut in the mid nineteenth century, helps educate a group of African run-away slaves to evangelical work; a Boston family is rescued from poverty and despair by finding work through the mission; a missionary imports deer from Siberia to the Eskimos. Simply told, thinly veiled as fiction, these stories contain interesting material which should be of particular appeal to Protestant children as Sunday school reading.
