Overview

Old Wing Mission is a historical treasure of rare documents giving the account of Reverend George N. and Arvilla Smith in their work and social interactions with Native Americans at a Christian mission colony. / "On the American frontier natives and newcomers met in many places, but nowhere was the encounter more profound than at the Christian mission. Here missionaries sought not only to save Indian souls but to Americanize them. . . . As told through a remarkable set of original sources, the story of the Old Wing Mission reveals all the tensions and complexities when one culture seeks to change another. Old Wing Mission offers readers an opportunity to hear voices on both sides of the cultural divide. . . . Deserves a wide and appreciative audience." James P. Ronda, University of Tulsa / "Meticulous. . . . The Smith diaries recount the trials of frontier missionaries. . . . Academicians, Christian scholars, and readers who love history will all benefit from this high-quality work."James M. McClurken, Michigan State University
