What an interesting book! Jan 11, 2007
Having grown up on the stories of great missionaries, I thought I'd heard of most of them until I ran across this book! It is filled with the adventures and incredible stories of many little-known missionaries who were often contemporaries of all the common household names. Excellently written with many fascinating illustrations and interesting from start to finish, it covers the lives of men and women who were involved in mission work all around the globe, including in the US! You'll be glad you read it!
