Excerpt from Winning a Primitive People: Sixteen Years' Work Among the Warlike Tribe of the Ngoni and the Senga and Tumbuka Peoples of Central Africa

One of the outstanding tasks of the present generation is that of hastening the civilization and Christianization of Africa. No part of this undertaking is more pressing than that which concerns the many tribes in the interior. The volume of Mr. Donald Fraser which deals with a comparatively limited area and population, sets forth with vividness and with fascinating detail the facts essential to an understanding of the problems involved in the transformation of primitive peoples. Here one sees communities passing from indolence, ignorance, superstition, and lawlessness into thrift, intelligence, reasonable faith, and well-ordered life. The essential contribution made by Christian Missions in accomplishing these remarkable changes is illustrated with fulness and fairness. If one wishes to know exactly the life and work of the modern missionary in Africa, this book will show him.

Mr. Fraser was one of the founders of the Student Christian Movement of the British Isles, and has also done much to further missionary life and activity among the students of the Continent of Europe and of North America.
