Five Years in Africa

Eugene, OR: Koke-Chapman Company.

Softcover. Very Good. First and only edition. Undated, but c. 1935. 48 pp, with b/w illustrations from photographs, in original stapled wrappers. Light handling wear and soiling to wrappers, previous owner's name and address on inside cover; else clean and sound. Scarce account by a female Methodist Episcopal missionary working from Quessua Station in Angola in the 1930s. In a chatty, accessible style, Miss Cranfall offers colorful descriptions of life at the schools, local religious life, medical work, and travel to visit out-stations, plantations, and "cannibal country" (Libolo, Banga-Wanga, Quiongua).
