- DESCRIPTION -
Original published in 1880
Titus Coan tells his adventurous story of his missionary life and labors in Patagonia (now predominantly Argentina) while living with a savage tribe. He paints a vivid picture of the land, indigenous people and their culture in the early 1800's. Book was written by him in his later life mostly from his journals but also contains add-ons of subsequent missionary efforts in the area as well.
The Introduction written by Rev. Henry M. Field is in itself a short revealing biography into the life of Titus Coan, the man, missionary and explorer who later spent the rest of his life ministering to native Hawaiians in the Islands.
The Introduction written by Rev. Henry M. Field itself is a short revealing biography into the life of Titus Coan, the man, missionary and explorer.
FROM THE PREFACE
The following notes of a visit to Patagonia and the Falkland Islands are offered to the public in response to the call of many friends who desire to see the simple narrative in print.
These sketches of daily life at sea and among the wild savages of Patagonia were written for friends, and to assist personal recollections, and are now offered with diffidence simply as a plain record of facts and experiences.
The Supplement is added because the published narratives of visitors and missionary toilers among the Patagonian and Fuegian tribes have furnished new facts concerning those dark realms since the earlier part of the book was written. I have therefore taken the liberty to quote from the voyages of Admiral Fitzroy, Prof. Charles Darwin, Mr. Bourne, and from "The Story of Allen Gardiner," to all of which I am indebted for important information, as I am also to very many shipmasters, officers, and private friends, whose sympathy, unaffected courtesy, and generous aid were so liberally extended to my companion and to myself during that memorable year of our lives.
May Heaven's blessings rest upon them all in this life and throughout the future; and may the day be hastened when from every mountain-top and from the shining hills of heaven no "dark places shall be seen on earth" and no "habitations of cruelty"!
