KIRKUS REVIEW

An enthusiastic devoted profile of Evangeline General of the Salvation Army, written by one of her followers from a collection of papers, and profusely illustrated in her own words. Anecdotal, easy reading, this chronicles her life, from her English ancestry to her latest years here in the . Mere is the beginning of the Army under her father; Eva's early display her first assignment in England; her Canadian and Alaskan missions; the service here in the United States. Of particular interest is her brother's surge of anti-British feeling, to separate the American Salvation Army from founders, and the ill-fated attempt to dismiss Eva Booth from service, than reportage, this portrayal will probably find a sympathetic audience among the ardent followers.
