Book Title: A Yankee and the Swamis
Desc:

A Westerner's view of the Ramakrishna Order. This volume is record of a journey by a well-informed American to the great holy places of India, and his study of the Ramakrishna Order and movement.
Questing the higher values of life, Yale, the author of this well-informed travelogue, visited India , pilgrimaged to many holy places, met and discussed many things with monks of the Ramakrishna Order. The travelogue he has produced is remarkable for the keenness of his observation, the clarity of his description of scenes and events, the warmth of his assessment of personalities and above all the healthy humor with which he enjoys men and matters. The narration flows smooth, with literary flashes off and on.
Accustomed to the Western style of living, he candidly mentions the inconveniences he encountered in Indian milieu, but he is quick to acknowledge gratefully the rare insights he gained and the spiritual experiences he was blessed with during his sojourn.
