Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0974094099, Paperback)

"I Knew William Booth" introduces a fresh look into the life of the Salvation Army Founder from the perspectives of those who knew him: journalists, clergy, family and close associates. The book paints a uniquely human portrait of the General who - although a reluctant celebrity - made use of his fame to advance the cause of poor and marginalized people all over the world. We witness him deep in thought, en route to his many appointments, as a guest in other people's homes and at Hadley Wood with his wife and children. Included are personal memories of those who knew him best: his boarder, Miss Jane Short; his son, Bramwell; first lieutenant George Scott Railton; and private secretary J. Evan Smith. In addition, there are recollections of eminent writers and acquaintances like W.T. Stead, H. Rider Haggard, Philip Gibbs, and Raymond Blathwayt. The book portrays William Booth as a strong-willed, compassionate and tireless leader who earned the respect of everyone who knew him and who rejected all opportunity for personal gain.
