Endorsements of Courage, Endurance, Sacrifice

“Rich in historical facts, this biographical work of three generations of missionary work in one family covering the period from 1875 to 1972 and from “Wild West” Texas and Mexico then later to China and Taiwan is amazingly detailed. This latest publication by Charlotte Harris Rees vividly depicts the courage, endurance, and sacrifice of those pioneering missionary workers in faith.

“In this well-researched book the author offers a good picture of the true nature of missionary work and of the contributions missionaries have made in many parts of the world.

“For readers interested in the modern history of China during the most turbulent period of its history, this book also provides useful insights.”

“In Courage, Endurance, Sacrifice Charlotte Harris Rees inspires readers in a carefully researched portrayal of three generations of her family as they faced epic degrees of adversity with simple, reasoned, obedient, and patient endurance. The family’s selfless witness allowed them to become uniquely one with their indigenous people groups in a truly shared humanity. I recommend this page-turner.”

Is there evidence that ancient America was discovered
and colonized long before Christopher Columbus?

In 1972 the late Dr. Hendon M. Harris, Jr. made a startling discovery. While searching for Chinese collectibles he came across an ancient Asian map book containing a world map showing a land mass labeled "Fu Sang" to the east of China, land that we today call America.

After years of research and his discovery of the existence of twenty-nine other supporting maps, Dr. Harris published a 796 page book titled The Asiatic Fathers of America.  That book has long been out of print and for years after Dr. Harris' death the map collection just lay in a box under his son's bed.

In 2003, with the sudden world-wide interest in this topic, the family took the maps to the Library of Congress. For three years the maps were there while being studied.

On May 16, 2005 Dr. Harris' daughter, Charlotte Harris Rees, gave a speech at the Library of Congress about the early arrival of Chinese to America (CLICK HERE for a full transcript). Now Mrs. Rees is presenting this condensed, easy reading version of Dr. Harris' original text.

Recent research on DNA and on the method of the Indians arrival to America support what Dr. Harris taught - Chinese came early and they came by sea.

This abridged version of Dr. Harris' book, The Asiatic Fathers of America, contains several never before released pictures of the Harris map collection. The book also contains a brief biography about Dr. Harris' unusual life written by his daughter Charlotte.

Harris, a third generation missionary, was born in Kaifeng, China to American parents. He learned both Chinese and English at a very early age. He was familiar with the Chinese classics which down through the centuries discussed Fu Sang in detail. Most Chinese today believe that Fu Sang was just myth, but was it? Harris' introductions to the maps, Chinese classics, and the similarities of American Indians to Chinese give new insights to this topic.
