Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
YA Teens should enjoy this new edition of Elliot's reverent account of five missionaries who were killed by the Auca Indians in Ecuador in 1956. The book has been updated with new photos and a 1981 epilogue. Taken primarily from the men's own diaries, letters, and writings, it is as much a character study of five likable young men inspired by faith as an illuminating view of a missionary's life in another culture. A book to interest YAs curious about other ways of life and thought. Sally Bates, Houston Public Library
