This is a scarce book of Marxist propaganda for children. Rt. Rev. William Mongomery "Bad Bishop" Brown was an Episcopalian bishop who vocally supported Communism, segregation, and other controversial viewpoints, including rejection of the existence of a literal God or Jesus. Brown was the first Episcopalian bishop to be tried for heresy since the Reformation and the first American bishop of any denomination to be excommunicated for heresy. This book was one of his self-published pro-science, anti-religion texts for children, scarcely found in any edition. Very good. Item #1038
