From the dust jacket-
"Grace Scribner began life in a lumber village, with little preparation for the bitter struggles she was later to face and overcome. After years of confusion and suffering she at last found the opportunity which enabled her to devote herself, body and soul, to her lifelong faith- the religion of humanity."
Signed by Lynd Ward, Winifred Chappell, and Harry F. Ward (Lynd Ward's father - a Methodist lay minister, political activist, and cofounder of the ACLU) on the front free endpaper.
