Fifteen Years Among the Top-Knots, or Life In Korea
Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This book is a valuable first-hand document of an exciting time in Korean history. It is an important window for historians, sociologists or missiologists. Miss Lillias Horton, of Chicago, went to Korea as a medical missionary in 1888. There she was met with a world of people and customs quite alien from her own. What did she do? She rolled up her sleeves, treated the sick and the dying, and told the people of the love of Christ. This book is an amazing account of an intrepid woman who was not afraid to give all for the gospel. She married Horace Grant Underwood, who was one of the first Protestant missionaries to Korea. But she became a historic figure in her own right -- pioneering in medical missions, becoming physician to the queen, founding Severance Hospital in Seoul, the first female missionary to travel throughout Korea with the gospel, and she was a central character in the PyongYang Revival. This book is a must-read... it is the remarkable account of an important moment in world history.
