Overview

Introducing Mary Slessor

Imatu had seen white people in her village in West Africa, but only when they came to sell liquor, guns, and slave chains. One rainy day, Imatu was sent to find a goat that had run away from the village. But when she found instead a brightly colored regal canoe with a white woman inside and five black children, Imatu quickly forgot about the goat!

The woman, Mary Slessor, had come to Imatu’s village to set up a school and teach them about a God who loves them, who wouldn’t demand cruel rituals like Imatu’s" tribal religion. But when Imatu’s mother is taken prisoner and condemned to drink the deadly poison bean, would Mary Slessor’s respect in the village prove enough to save her?

Imatu was frantic with fear! Who will rescue her mother from the poison bean?

An adventure story, ideal for readers 8-12 years of age.

Editorial Reviews

National Review
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.
Peter J. Dycky
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.
