“No other woman, we apprehend,” wrote William C. Buck, “could or would have, so cheerfully, met all the trials which befell her in those long years of suffering and toil, in her efforts to aid and sustain her husband in prosecuting his benevolent plans in behalf of the aborigines of America. But she seems to have drank from the same spirit, and to have entered as deeply and zealously into all his plans and labors, in behalf of the Indians, as he did himself.” Such a lady was Christiana McCoy, whose story is so compelling that she needs to be resurrected from the darkness of the forgotten past to remind us of what every Christian should be willing to be and do. -- Gary W.
