"An historical treasure." Bob Edwards, host of National Public Radio's Morning Edition The inspiring story of a true American hero In 1892 Edward Bliss packed up his family and embarked on a journey that took him to a remote outpost in feudal China, where he served as a medical missionary until the early days of Mao Zedong. Bliss battled malaria, plague, floods, and encroaching communist armies to help make the world a better place. He healed the sick, worked as a farmer, delivered babies, and bred cattle all for the "glory of God and dignity of man." This remarkable biography, written by Bliss's son, is a luminous portrait of an exemplary figure, a man whose remarkable life story offers readers inspiration to face adversity in their own time. Beyond the Stone Arches also delivers a sharply etched portrait of one of the great social movements in recent history the outpouring of missionaries to Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.
