This detailed study investigates the early decades (1847-1880) of Protestant missionary work in one of the important provincial capitals of China. Missionary activities are examined from the points of view of the missionaries themselves, of the British and American consuls in Foochow, and of the Chinese officials in Foochow and in the Prefectural and District Cities around. The author gives careful consideration to the obstacles to missionary success, including sources of conflict between the missionaries and the Chinese. The Wu-shih-shan incident of 1878 in Foochow is given special attention.

E V Thompson lived and worked in Africa at a time when it was undergoing momentous change. Yet there was enough of the 'old' Africa, the world of 'mud huts and missionaries' for him to glimpse some of the humor, pathos and simplicity of an era that would soon be gone forever, and to weave these ingredients into his short stories. Interspersed among them are some of the legends and tales told around the campfires of various tribes for countless generations. To these, E V Thompson has added his own distinctive imagination to the origin of some of the lesser known animals and birds who have their homes on that vast continent.
