Originally printed in 1887, the Pioneer Preacher is a lively account of a Congregationalist minister's attempts to lead a sin-free existence on the American frontier. Sherlock Bristol (1815-1906) was a California gold miner, wagon train captain, Wi sconsin farmer, Idaho rancher, Indian fighter, abolutionist, and Oberlin-trained clergyman. While serving a series of churches in the East, he periodically cured himself of "nervous disorders" by journeying out west. He only broke the Sabbath once ---during an Indian attack! Greatly influenced by the evangelist Charles G. Finney at Oberlin, Bristol tried to teach miners & frontiersman the principles of revivalism, postmillennialism, & perfectionism. In "The Pioneer Preacher" he shares his own disputatious views on abolition, American Indians, Temperance, & other issues of his day.
