This is an exciting novel full of stories about brave ministers and hardy, rough and tumble woodsmen in the Lumber and Mining Camps of Northwest Canada

A Handsome Early Edition of
by Ralph Connor

Rev. Charles W. Gordon spent many years ministering to souls in the lumber and mining camps of the Great Canadian Rockies. The camps were a wild and unruly environment, and what Gordon experienced there provided him with rich material for his books, which he wrote using the pseudonym of Ralph Connor. "Black Rock, A Tale of the Selkirks" was the first of his books depicting the trials and tribulations of a missionary on the wild western Canadian frontier. This was a very popular book in its day, and has actually lost none of its charm or spiritual vitality. He followed "Black Rock" with "The Sky Pilot", which was even more popular.
