More About the Author

Mrs. Charles E. Cowman worked as a pioneer missionary with her husband in Japan and China from 1901 to 1917, during which time they helped found the Oriental Missionary Society. When Mr. Cowman's poor health forced the couple to return to the United States, Mrs. Cowman turned her attention to caring for her husband until his death six years later. Out of Mrs. Cowman's experiences and heartbreak came her first book, Streams in the Desert, followed by its companion Springs in the Valley. During the next twenty-five years, Mrs. Cowman inspired several nationwide Scripture distribution campaigns and wrote seven more books. Finally, on Easter Sunday in 1960, at the age of ninety, Mrs. Cowman met face-to-face the God she had served so faithfully for nearly a century.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Rosie Olson on November 18, 2011
Format: Hardcover
I have a very well used/loved copy of this book in paper back. No other book in my life has helped me more in those times of great loss. I have used some of this book to help others as well, family and friends. It's the one resource I reach for when I "don't know what to say." I went in to panic mode when I moved and could not find where I put it. Whew, it's here right beside me tonight as I write this review. I wish this book would go into print again - another edition... Don't know the history behind it. I can only offer my praise and deep thank you for it. If the authors, publishers or relatives of the author read this...please, re-publish this book. I have been in and out of a cult... this helped me and helped me help others in a way that was clear, real and loving... Thank you Mrs. Charles Cowman.
