Abstract:

"China Journal is an extraordinary collection of letters and journals forgotten in an Iowa attic for almost a hundred years and now published in paperback for the first time. In 1889 an Iowa missionary couple, Charles Wesley Price and Eva Jane Price, set out for China with their two young children. Their letters home provide a unique look at late-nineteenth-century China, and tell the very personal story of a woman and her family committed to spreading the message of Christianity. Culminating in the bloody Boxer Rebellion of 1899-1900, China Journal is a tragic but finally inspiring account of a woman who was willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for her beliefs"--Back cover.
