Reverand Samuel Graham Wilson's preparation for writing Persian Life and Customs was a fourteen year residence in Tabriz, Persia, as a missionary under the Presbyterian Board of American Foreign Missions. The result is an intimate portrait of the manners and customs of a much varied land, in which customs are not only stereotyped, they are not even uniform in differnt parts of the country or even of the same province. Popular in presentation, the early chapters describe the 'scenes and places visited en route to Persia', whilst the later ones describe the 'civil, religious, social, domestic, and commercial life of the people in cities, villages and tents'. The final chapter presents 'some of the methods and the results of missionary work among different races in Persia'.
