Overview

Thrilling adventure stories introducing young readers (ages 8-12) to Christian heroes of the past.

"Someday, foreigners will come who will reveal the mysteries of the spirit world." It seems clear to fourteen-year-old Kyemap that this ancient Lengua prophecy is fulfilled by Barbrooke Grubb. Kyemap wants to accept the missionary's teachings. But he fears the powerful witch doctors whose superstitious murders threaten the tribe's very survival. Kyemap's older cousin Poit takes an interest in the Englishman, too, offering to help him reach other Paraguayan tribes. But Kyemap knows his cousin only too well and suspects Poit is up to no good.

Then Grubb takes a trip home, and Poit agrees to watch his herd of cattle. But Poit soon becomes impatient, butchering some cattle and holding feasts to impress tribal leaders. When Grubb returns and asks to see the herd, Poit leads him deep into the treacherous Jaguar Swamp. Kyemap fears the worst. Must he betray his cousin to protect the man whose message could save the Lengua people?

Editorial Reviews

NR Book Service, 4/28/04
There’s no better way to introduce your 8 to 14 year olds to Christian heroes than through these exciting works of historical fiction. Each narrative brings today’s youngsters into close contact with a man or woman of faith as seen through the eyes of a child whose life intersects in a dramatic way with the famous Christian. The stories give accurate portrayals both of history and of the character of the Christian hero while holding kids captive to a tale of adventure.

Say “history” and many people yawn. Say “novel” and others think the book’s not true. But everyone loves a good story about real people and actual events touched with a dab of fantasy. I was about to ask the authors what was true and what was not, but their books have a page answering exactly that question. That is most helpful. Dave and Neta Jackson are masters in writing historical novels…for ages 8-12, though many adults can’t resist.
