Notes
"`An Apostle of the North' by H.A. Cody was originally published in 1908 by Seeley & Co. Limited, London, Great Britain. This facsimile edition reproduces the original text from the 1908 edition". -- verso of t.-p.
"Introduction by William R. Morrison and Kenneth S. Coates".
Includes bibliographical references and index.
New material includes: Preface -- Glossary -- W.C. Bompas, An Apostle of the North -- Selected Bibliography -- Index to this Edition.
"Bishop William Carpenter Bompas was a difficult man, cantankerous, stubborn, and more than a little eccentric. He carried on his shoulders the deep spirituality of his own faith, the assumptions of his background, and the cultural aggressiveness of the Victorian age. He was a church leader who often disagreed with his church and ignored its advice. Bompas' life in the North offers insights into the compelling force of religion and faith, one of the most pervasive forces in human experience, capable of transforming people, creating conflict, spreading hope, motivating entire nations, and, as history has shown, making horrible and damaging mistakes. In a new Introduction, historians William Morrison and Ken Coates examine Bompas' career, exploring themes central to the history of the church in Canada and to aboriginal-newcomer relations". -- back cover.

Notes
"Bishop Sperry's book is not only a record of the traditional ways of life in the Central Arctic in the 1950s and 1960s, but also the personal account of a man who became known for his sensitivity, humility and compassion. He and his wife Elizabeth are still warmly loved by the Central Arctic Inuit for their services during the good time of health and plenty, as well as the terrible times of epidemic and famine. The Sperrys are remembered because they did not set themselves apart from the people with who they lived and worked, and for the respect they had for the traditional beliefs of their Inuit hosts. This copy has been signed by the author.
