GARENGANZE; or Seven Years' Pioneer Mission Work in Central Africa.

(London: James E. Hawkins, c.1893).

SCARCE AND A CLASSIC WORK of Victorian area discovery and exploration during the opening of Africa. “This (is the) story of seven years of pioneer mission work in the heart of the Dark Continent...it is a son’s letter to his mother and the home group; and it is a story of strictly pioneer work, for he undertook to cross the continent by foot. The journey, undertaken in an apostolic spirit, was marked by that savour of the supernatural which is so sweet to the believer...The book is a revelation of passion for the soul.” (preface to the third edition). Item #11737
