STONE PILLOWS: An American's Ground-Breaking Mission to King Zog's Albania, is the biography of C. Telford Erickson, Missionary and Diplomat, 1908-1939.
"Erickson is a heralded name in the history of the Albanian national reawakening of the early 20th Century. His life's work was first rooted in Christian missionary activity, but soon prompted him to engage in educational and cultural interventions which brought to light the needs of an oppressed people relatively unknown to European and U.S. diplomacy. He earned the confidence of presidents and bishops, kings and imams, who secured his counsel and relied on his judgment.
Braunlich brings to the fore the fascinating life story of an erudite American who cared and made a difference. It is an invaluable resource for those who wish to understand the Balkans at a formative period of transition and its connection to the rise of Western interest in the region." (Rev. Arthur E. Liolin, Chancellor, Albanian Orthodox Archdiocese in America)
