This is the personal story of Thomas LeRoy Kirkpatrick while he taught in a Missionary School in Tabriz, Persia 1911-1914. It is also a history of the tumultuous and dangerous times in that nation's history, with Constitutionalist uprising, brutal repression by the Qajar Dynasty, daily hangings, Russian Invasion and shelling of the city, mass starvation, and relief efforts by the missionaries. Kirkpatrick documented all this both in his writings and his original photographs, hundreds of which are seen here for the first time. This book chronicles his personal quest to open the world to the youth of Persia as well as bring them the Gospel of Jesus Christ. His story is embedded in the larger sweep of historic events that ultimately gave birth to the worldly and educated people in the modern nation of Iran
