Offers the most comprehensive account of Karen traditional beliefs that foretold the arrival of missionaries, the white brothers.
Written from a decidedly Christian worldview and represents similar
accounts that portray the Karen as heathen savages who were saved by missionaries. However, also demonstrates how the Karen church was formed and how Karen missionaries, starting with Ko Tha Byu, were responsible for the spread of Christianity.
Another interesting early missionary account, especially in light of Sgaw Karen Christian identity today.
