About the Author

Tolly Bradford is an assistant professor of history at Concordia University College of Alberta in Edmonton.


Tolly Bradford is among very few historians to compare the spread of British colonization and mission Christianity in nineteenth-century North America and Southern Africa. This thoroughly researched and well-written book examines what it meant to be indigenous and Christian at a time of violent and exploitive European colonial conquest and portrays indigenous missionaries Henry Budd of western Canada and Tiyo Soga of the Eastern Cape as active agents with minds of their own. -- Timothy J. Stapleton, Professor of History, Trent University
