Jameson and Gale Bond’s memoirs tell the story of their six decades of Bahá’í service, particularly as Knights of Bahá’u’lláh in the Canadian District of Franklin above the Arctic Circle. Shoghi Effendi realized that among the goals of the Ten Year Crusade, "the objectives of the far north are perhaps the hardest. On the other hand, the harder the task, the more glorious the victory. You may be sure that he is praying for your success ..."


The Ten Year Crusade's driving force was described by Shoghi Effendi as the energizing influence generated by the Revelation heralded by the Báb and proclaimed by Bahá'u'lláh . In Jamie's opinion, this same force could well have been the catalyst for advancements in society such as the introduction and accelerated development of health services and education in the Canadian Arctic; the first extensions into the Arctic of the Canadian judicial system; and the first ballot boxes that gave Eskimos a voice in the political mosaic all of which occurred during the Ten Year Crusade.


During the ten years they spent in the District of Franklin, Gale and Jamie never had a Bahá'í visitor. But the Arctic regions, and especially the indigenous peoples of the Arctic Archipelago, were always in their hearts and minds even after they left in 1963. Their services in later years, particularly Jamie's services on Bahá'í institutions and in international forums, and Gale's journeys to her native Hungary to help establish Bahá'í communities there, are recounted in the last three chapters.

Sole Desire Serve Cause
One of the most touching and inspiring Baha'i Biographies I have ever read. When I had to put it down, I couldn't wait to pick it up again.
