Illustrated / decorative end papers. Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the preface: “This is not intended to be u complete survey of missionary activity in Mongolia. We would have loved to have told something of the valuable work of the Swedish Mongol Mission with whose members we have enjoyed the sweetest fellowship. Of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Hindle who gave nearly thirty years of their lives for Mongolia’s cause; of Grace Fordham, that great-hearted Mary Slessor of Mongolia; of Mr. and Mrs. Almblad, Josephine Olsen, Huldah Wicklund, and others who have loved, laboured and sacrificed. But the book has been largely written for the good folk of the Homeland and only those things have been told which would impress them with the great need of this vast forsaken land.”
