Village Life in China

by Arthur H. Smith

From The New York Times: If we are not to accept the studies that missionaries have made of the Chinese, whose are we to accept? We do not mean the accounts of the seminary young man who, fresh from his studies, lives in China for a six-month, and then writes of his experiences, but of the men like the author of this volume, who has had a residence of twenty-two years in China.Mr. Smith’s volume is a highly entertaining one, showing uncommon shrewdness, with keen analysis of character.
