This antiquarian book contains John Aitken Chalmers’ 1877 biography, “Tiyo Soga - A Page of South African Mission Work”. Tiyo Soga (1829 - 1871) was a South African journalist, minister, missionary, and translator. This fascinating biography is recommended for those with an interest in historical African mission work, and is not to be missed by fans and collectors of Chalmers’ work. Contents include: “The Polygamist’s Village”, “The Villagers”, “Birth Chronicles”, “Soga, an Agriculturalist”, “Marriage Customs”, “Ceremonials at a Birth”, “The Tyume, or Chumie”, “Pioneers of the Mission”, “Rev. John Brownlee”, “Rev. William Chalmers and Others”, etcetera. Many vintage texts such as this - especially those dating back to the 1900s and before - are becoming increasingly rare and expensive. It is with this in mind, that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
