The Missionaries

Format: Paperback
Number Of Pages: 256

Description:
Intended to be the concluding trilogy of a series of autobiographical books (beginning with Voices of the Old Sea and Jackdaw Cake) but instead was transmuted into a deeply searing examination of the extermination of indigenous tribes by North American fundamentalist missionaries. It is all the more powerful, in that it is the distillation of a lifetime of accidental observation on the ground by one of the greatest travel writers in the English language setting off to record, with admiration the superior culture achieved by many of these peoples.

About the Author

Norman Lewis is Britain's greatest living travel writer, with a list of some 10 travel books and several books of collected journalism to his name. However Lewis regards his greatest achievement to have been the reaction to his article Genocide in Brazil, published in The Sunday Times in 1968. It led to a change in Brazilian law relating to the treatment of the Indians and to the formation of Survival International which fights for the survival of indigenous peoples everywhere. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
