2014 Reprint of 1929 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. Dr. Frank C. Laubach was a world literacy pioneer who started the "Each One Teach One" method of language learning in the Philippines. After fourteen years as a conventional missionary Laubach arrived in 1929 to work among the Muslim Filipino [Moro] population of the Lake Lanao area of Mindanao. Convniced that the usual evangelistic and educational programs would be counterproductive as a means of touching Moro lives wit the word of God, Laubach determined that literacy teaching was potentially a more fruitful idea. This book recounts his first experiences in the Philippines and the people he worked with. Also contains a historical discussion of the Philippines and the lives and habits of the Moro he encountered.
