These pioneers followed the old Indian trails which led through deserts and over mountain fastnesses. They threaded their way through tangled woods and mountain snows. They made the forests their cathedrals, and their burning messages were set to the music of rushing waterfalls. They believed that in time the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose. The trails they followed have since become royal highways dotted with meeting-houses and schools and Christian homes.In By-Paths to Forgotten Folks is a series of journeys to these ancient peoples, journeys full of thrilling interest. The earlier services and sacrifices of John M. Peck and his followers are fully rewarded- we see the Christian villages and homes of the Mono, the Hopi, and the Navajo.It is given us to see clearly the work of the frontier missionary pastor with all his problems, his perils, and his consecrations. These records of his labors in remote communities make you wish to help him in his great task.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
