"The task of attempting to reconstruct the early days of the great Pioneer Missionary, William Carey, is no easy one. The picture the author paints is that of an unusual type of boy, by no means goody-goody. Lovable and full of mischief, he had a serious side to his nature, a passion for reading and a love of nature. The passage from boyhood to man's estate is well told."
