The blurb on the back of the book reads:
"Before cars and airplanes, John Wesley traveled over 200,000 miles--more than eight times around the world--to spread the message of the gospel. On horseback, in wagons, on foot, and by ship, John Wesley spread a message of personal holiness, spiritual discipline, and Christian charity. It wasn't easy. Besides the hard physical travel, John Wesley faced times of doubt, sickness, and opposition to his message. But through his eighty-seven years of life, he reached untold numbers of people with God's Word. He was a man of God, and a man of action. Get to know John Wesley--The Horseback Preacher!"
