Description will be updated soon. A fascinating history of one missionary wife's experiences in the field among the Tsimshian people of the Northwest Coast. Emma Crosby (1849-1926) was most often in the shadow of her Methodist missionary husband. From her letters and papers donated by the family to the University of British Columbia Library, an historian and Ojibwe literacy professor combine their perspectives into the unique world of a missionary wife. Emma Crosby worked with her husband Thomas Crosby to establish a mission and the Crosby Girls' Home (later a residential school) in Fort Simpson. The authors bring critical light to this effort and the woman who worked among First Nations in the mission field.
