An Adventurer With God (Mary Lee Latimer)

  • Mary Lee Latimer

    A fascinating biography of Daniel Nelson, a pioneer farmer in Iowa who in 1890 sold everything he had and, with his wife, four children and $500, set forth to become the first Norwegian-American Lutheran missionary in China. This dramatic human-interest story is told in graphic detail by his daughter, Mary Lee Latimer, and is based on Nelson’s voluminous diaries, records, and papers, which she translated from the Norwegian, and on her personal experiences in China where she was born. It transports the reader into the very lives of the Chinese people involved.
