2 Hiney, Tom On the Missionary Trail: A Journey Through Polynesia, Asia, and Africa With the London Missionary Society
Atlantic Monthly Pr 2000 0871138239 / 9780871138231 1st American Edition; 1st Printing Hardcover NF/NF; Like new  

In 1821, thirty years after its founding, the London Missionary Society deputized George Bennet and Daniel Tyerman to visit and report on stations as far-flung as Johannesburg, Tahiti, and Canton. For many of the missionaries abroad, it would be their first contact from home in years. Tyerman and Bennet encountered storms, pirates, and tigers and negotiated relationships with powerful kings and the sailors and slave traders who were their countrymen but whose actions they often deplored. They battled intractable opposition and exulted in successful conversions. In 1829, Bennet finally returned home; Tyerman never made it. A remarkable account of faith and bravery, On the Missionary Trail is a unique addition to the literature of the missionary encounter. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 304 pp
