Seven Thousand Emeralds by Frank C. Laubach, Margaret Ayer

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.
