Kupfer was the president of William Nast College, Kiukaing, China, Kiangsi Province. "The chief reason for producing this little volume is to give to the thoughtful reader of China and the Chinese a clearer conception of the readiness of the people to accept, with full credence, such whimsical and mythological stories as are here related, of their susceptibility of spiritual influences, and of the decay of intellectual vigor among the Buddhist and Taoist priests, as the inevitable result of monasticism.The writer traveled to distant mountains in the Mid-China summer months, visiting monasteries, and living with monks in the hope of gaining some knowledge of their inner life and hope of the future.".
