Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated red stapled card covers. “Cock-Crow in Angola is a most significant hour. True, many people are not aware of it, for the simple reason that they are still sound asleep, but those who have a long journey to make, or an importanttask to perform, awake to its clarion call and set about their business. I t is still very early in the morning in Angola. The black night of heathenism has hardly yet given way to the dawn, but the dawn is breaking and a newday is being born. What kind of a day it is likely to be depends largely o n us. [...] In these few stories I have tried to give a pen-picture of the way in which our people live, the difficulties they encounter, and the transformation wrought in their lives by the all-victorious power of redeeming love.” - from the Preface.
