The Children of Africa. Written for English-Speaking Children. With Map and Illustrations

Author: Annie Wright Marston
Publisher: Hodder and Stoughton
Publish Date: 1886

A royal book. Like the former volumes by the same author, this work teems with instruction so lovingly given, and so plentifully garnished with pictures that the boys and girls must and will read it, and must also remember it afterwards.  These marvelous pages ought to be worth 10,000 a year to the missionary cause. They ought to be worth more than that; for they should win hearts and lives, which are not to be valued by millions of gold and silver. All the known regions of Africa are here depicted; and we feel that we have been made by this book to know very much more about the dark continent than we knew before.
