No homes or home life, no enterprise, no written language; but wild, nomadic, barbarous, savage, their glory the glory of war and plunder, their religion that of bloody revenge, the conscience and moral instinct dead. But among the wild tribes, as well as the civilized, the gospel proves the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth. There is a wonderful chapter to be written in this respect, but what God has wrought among them will be told in a separate volume later on. The author sends forth this true story of Andele's life with the hope that the young people of the church to whom it is affectionately dedicated may find both pleasure and profit in reading it.

Andele adapted rapidly to the life of a Kiowa boy.
