Missionary Life Among the Cannibals: Being the Life of the Rev. John Geddie, D.D., First Missionary to the New Hebrides : with a History of the Nova Scotia Presbyterian Mission on that Group, Part 4
While our work is intended specially as a life of Dr. Geddie, we have thought it proper to make it, at the same time, a history of the New Hebrides Mission. For several years his life was the history of the Mission, and, during the rest of the time that he labored on the field, the two were so mixed that it is impossible to write the one without, to some extent, giving the other. It will be seen that our story is told very much in Dr. G.'s own words. - Preface.
