A Manual for Pioneers

This book contains advice on everything that a pioneer (or even a stay-at-home) will need, from a copy of the Greatest Name and a photograph of 'Abdu'l Bahá in the front, to basic recipes and health hints at the back. It includes down to earth advice on where and how to go, culture shock, climate, morals, servants, mud huts, how to furnish a nest and meeting place (for almost nothing), sanitary facilities, common hazards and much much more.

Rúhíyyih Khanúm herself undertook extensive travels through the five continents and as a vivifying breeze infused a new spirit into the tired bodies of the pioneers. Through this book her tender concern and gift of common sense will continue to travel to the hearts of pioneers everwhere. Her advice is as true today as it was 30 years ago.

About Ruhiyyih Rabbani

Amatu'l-Bahá Rúhíyyih Khánum, born Mary Sutherland Maxwell (1910-2000), grew up in Montreal, Canada. Following the passing of her illustrious husband Shoghi Effendi in 1957 she travelled to 185 countries, independent territories, and islands of the world to teach the Faith.

Her written works include Prescription for Living, which has been widely read and translated into a number of languages, The Desire of the World, A Manual for Pioneers, and Poems of the Passing. She has also produced two documentaries, The Green Light Expedition, a two-hour film of her seven-month journey with her crew through the Amazon area of South America, and The Pilgrimage, a visit to the sacred sites of the Bahá'í World Centre in the Holy Land, guided and narrated by herself. She passed away in January 2000.
