I got this book for a student of mine for her class curriculum, and was going over it to see if it was too boring or above her head (6th grader). Anyway, started reading and couldn't put it down, had to prolong her wait for a reading book. It's an old book and the values seem a lot different then ours, but it makes you remember the way things should be and the way I want to raise my children. It also shows how to trust in God the way one should. I haven't even finished it yet, but just wanted to give it a thumbs up.
Isobel Miller Kuhn (1901-1957), a Canadian missionary to the Tibeto-Burmese Lisu people of southwest China, wrote a number of popular books about her missionary work. This one, published posthumously after her premature death from cancer, treats Kuhn's pre-missionary career from her teenage years until she sailed for China in 1928. Kuhn had a gift for storytelling, and By Searching is nicely written.
