Promotional Information

Good Intentions Gone Awry offers insight into the previously underemphasized role of women in all aspects of missionary life - both as an exploration of the gendered practices within the missionary project that regimented Emma Crosby's life and the results of the imposition of such practices on Aboriginal girls. The authors invite the reader to accept Emma on her own terms, and offer interpretative tools to make sense of her within her times, without excusing her complacency in the colonialism inherent to Aboriginal missions. -- Susan Neylan, author of The Heavens Are Changing: Nineteenth-Century Protestant Missions and Tsimshian Christianity
