Overview
Drawing upon extensive research into Hannah Moore's personal correspondence from 1833-1868, Isabel Weigold tells the inspiring true story of this nineteenth-century missionary woman who spent her life championing those in need, regardless of their location or troubles.

Inspired by the plight of the Cherokee Indians and their enforced march-now known as the Trail of Tears-Moore decided at an early age to dedicate her life to missionary work. Full of the religious zeal of her youth as a Congregationalist, the Connecticut native began serving at the Dwight Mission in the Oklahoma Territory in 1841, teaching the Cherokee and Choctaw Indians to read and write.

But Moore's passion for helping the misfortunate soon sent her to the other side of the world. After hearing the story of the "Amistad" slave mutiny and subsequent trial in New Haven, Connecticut, Moore traveled to the Kaw Mendi Mission in Africa, arriving in 1847 and staying for more than fifteen years.

Up until her death in 1868 in the United States, Moore continued her missionary work, touching the lives of countless people and leaving the imprint of her remarkable benevolence. A true story of courage, devotion, and generosity, "Hannah Moore" presents a remarkable portrait of a woman selflessly committed to serving the less fortunate.
