As a thirteen year old boy on an East Texas farm, Fred M. Allen read a book about explorer/missionary David Livingstone and was mesmerized. Many years later, he stood at the edge of the mighty Victoria Falls and gazed upon a statue of Livingstone. By then, Allen had spent a lifetime in service for the Lord. From Cotton Fields to Mission Fields reveals the experiences that led Allen to make it his mission to spread God’s Word, beginning with his boyhood in Texas and extending to his decades of work as a missionary in Zambia. Allen began writing his stories for family and friends but realized how much his words could inspire others, after being given a column in a weekly newspaper. Then his brother, Duane Allen of the musical group “The Oak Ridge Boys,” offered to share his stories on social media. Over and over, people asked, “Are these stories in a book?” In this inspiring Christian memoir, Allen looks back on his life, collecting those stories in one place. His experiences highlight the importance of faith, hard work, and walking the path that God intended.

"From Cotton Fields to Mission Fields is a compelling and inspiring memoir about Anna Knight, a mixed-race woman who was born in the beginning of post-abolition America and whose life was dedicated to education and to her faith throughout her life. Accomplishing what others could not with so little, this woman of courage and determination, too white to be black and too black to be white, stood up against the moonshiners who threatened her."--Page 4 cover

Born in the south to a slave mother and a white father, Anna Knight grew up in the Jasper County, Mississippi cotton fields. Realizing this wasn’t for her, she taught herself to read and write and eventually became the first in her family to graduate from College. In From Cotton Fields to Mission Fields, author Dorothy Knight Marsh tells her great-aunt’s story. This memoir follows Anna from her early years in Mississippi, around the world, and back again. She graduated as a nurse from Battle Creek Sanitarium in Michigan and later returned home and operated a self-supporting school for the adults and children. Anna was then appointed a missionary to India, serving nearly seven years. Never forgetting those she left behind, Anna returned to the United States and restarted the school the knight riders burned. From Cotton Fields to Mission Fields narrates the story of a woman of purpose who had no fear, dedicated her life to education, establishing schools throughout the south for all black children.

This book is a real story of how one black girl of many grew up in a segregated Mississippi town. It could have been in any of the Southern States, but hers was Mississippi, where cotton was the money-making commodity and where cotton was grown in the state for the White man by the Black sharecroppers. I write this story so that this generation may know how they got to where they are now. Some of them only get bits and pieces of their grandmothers and grandfathers' journey from the cotton fields, tobacco fields, beans, cabbages, or wherever field they were planted to the place where they are now. This is their story. Read it, talk about it with your family, and share it with your friends. Yes, there are going to be challenges and obstacles along your life journey; but don't stop, keep hope alive, pray and keep the faith, and never give up on your dreams.
