"Bishop Isaac Stringer (1866-1934) left extensive documentation of his life and times in daily journals, letters, films and photographs. Historian Frank Peake wrote a biography of Stringer in 1966 entitled, 'The Bishop Who Ate His Boots'. Now 40 years later, Isaac Stringer's grandson, Richard Stringer (1944-2007), has left behind a documentary celebrating his grandfather's legacy as a pioneer missionary." "The film tells the story of Isaac and Sadie [Stringer], seamlessly interweaving the narrative with interviews with historians and personal contacts, shots of Richard Stringer doing research, and use of original photographs and footage from Isaac Stringer himself".

Stringer was known during his life as "The Bishop who ate his Boots" as a result of an incident during a tour of his diocese in 1909. Running low on provisions, he found that the seal skin of his boots was sufficient as emergency sustenance. Author: Frank Peake 1966". [Text of entire article.]
