Book Review
Another World Wonder, Annie C. Tuggle. Privately Printed. 227 pages. $5.95. This is really the autobiography of Annie C. Tuggle. who is now in her eighty-fourth year. As student, teacher, and Christian worker her life paralleled that of such men as G. P. Bowser, Alexander Campbell, R. N. Hogan, and Marshall Keeble. She taught in the Silver Point Christian Institute, The Bowser Christian Institute, the Southern Practical Institute, and the Nashville Christian Institute. Her activities were many and fruitful. The book contains many pictures. It is an unusual encyclopedia of work among her people. It should enjoy a wide reading. -- Gospel Advocate, Oct. 10, 1974, p. 652.
