About the Book
In this delightful book about African mission life, Josephine Cunnington Edwards shares stories of the Malamulo Mission in Nyasaland. She describes with great detail the native life of Africa, with all its triumph and tragedy, humor and sadness. As a mission teacher, she heard thrilling true adventures during her years serving at Malamulo. Lions and leopards, deer and crocodiles, pythons and baboons, hyenas and wild buffaloes, come to life on these pages.
Here also is a true portrayal of life in the native villages, with its superstitions and witch doctors and tribal customs. Best of all, running throughout the book are found evidences of what the gospel can do for lives long steeped in vice and ignorance and degradation. Nearly every story has its moral or lesson, clearly stated or implied.
There are fifty stories in all—almost enough to enjoy one each week for an entire year! This book can be enjoyed by children and families alike—or by anyone looking for a fun and inspiring read!
Available in PAPERBACK format.
