Condición del libro: Good +
[N.p., but Kansas? n.d., circa 1926]. 51pp. 12mo. Original printed grey wrappers. Rear wrapper soiled, and with some tears. A few text leaves with small, closed marginal tears. Leaf with pp.31-32 torn more severely, but with no loss of text. Good plus. The story of the eventful life and wanderings of a Kansas evangelist. Elliot Hodge was born at Bluefield, West Virginia in 1885, and before he was twenty had lived in several states, eventually working in coal mines in Arkansas. Shortly thereafter he joined the Busby Brothers One Ring Circus in Kansas, and worked in other travelling shows in Kansas, Arkansas, Texas, and Oklahoma. Hodge tells his story with charm and verve, going on to describe two stints in the army and his experiences there as a boxer. In 1919 "God began to call me into the ministry, and I began to lead the prayer meetings" in Kansas, and his ministry led to more interesting experiences, recounted in the second half of the text. Hodge also tells a long story of a squirrel hunting accident that resulted in a self-inflicted shotgun wound that cost him his right arm and led to a subsequent infection that almost took his life. Two different editions are noted in OCLC, a fifty-five page edition dated 1927 printed at Mulberry, Kansas (located in two copies), and the present undated fifty-one page edition. OCLC locates only one copy of the present edition (which we believe to be the earlier of the two editions) at the Fuller Theological Seminary. OCLC 664262854. N° de ref. de la librería 1629
