Original published in 1884
Biography of the journey of the missionary life and labors of Titus Coan in Hawaii, 1835-1881. Book was written by his wife after his death. Much of Titus Coan's missions life was spent in and around Hilo, Hawaii on the Big Island. This book contains many of his letters and journal entries. Besides a stunning record of the "Great Awakening" of the Hawaiian people to Christianity, the book gives vivid descriptions of the native Hawaiian people, their culture, the beauty of the land, volcano's, tsunamis and earthquakes.


"Titus Coan entered upon his mission to the Sandwich Islands [Hawaii], on the eve of a mighty outpouring of the Spirit; and he seems to have been divinely fitted for this crisis of the work by a large endowment of evangelistic gifts. In three months from the time he first set foot on the shores of Hawaii he began to preach in the native tongue. Before his first year closed the audiences, drawn to hear the Word by his peculiar power, reached many hundreds. And in six years from his arrival three-fourths of the adult population of his parish, to the number of more than seven thousand, were gathered into the bonds of Christian fellowship. There have been few thus honored of the Spirit in any age. It certainly is a success almost unparalleled in the annals of modern missions. A rare privilege then is given us in being permitted to look into the more private workings of a life so eminently blessed. This volume composed chiefly of unstudied utterances of the heart in familiar letters to kindred and missionary associates, will form a fitting companion, and will be, in some sort, a complement to Mr. Coan's own two volumes, 'Adventures in Patagonia,' and 'Life in Hawaii.' The labor of collecting and arranging the material is an offering of tender affection by the wife of his later years, herself born on missionary soil, and bearing an honored missionary name. The entire proceeds of the work are consecrated to the cause to which Mr. Coan and his noble associates gave their lives." [A point well taken.]

"This Memorial will be read with special interest by those who have long been familiar with the bright particular spot which the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii) furnish in the history of modern missions. It can scarcely fail to be a source of rich spiritual profit and encouragement to the growing number who pray in the secret place for the speedy coming of the Kingdom, and whose faith finds it's assurance in the divine promise, "All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the Lord; and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee." S. J. H. [REV. S. J. HUMPHREY, D. D.]
