This book was very thrilling and gave a day by day account of the missionary journey of a great group of Missionaries who gave their lives for a cause greater than thenselves. It was so refreshing to read a true account of a great event in History.
I first read this book over 50 years ago, when it came out, just after the world was in shock over the martyrdom of 5 young American missionaries killed by remote tribal people they went to South America to minister to. Written by Elisabeth Elliot, wife of Jim Elliot, who was one of the murdered men, it is an inspirational story of love and peace. I became interested in reading the story again when I heard of the film, END OF THE SPEAR, based on this event, and wanted to refresh the details in my mind before seeing the movie.
