Adventure On Elephant Mountain

£14.99

Product description

Otto Scheuzger tells the true story of a daring pioneer missionary journey. Peter and Rita Spiess had been married less than a year when the adventure began. David, another missionary with the C.I.M (now Overseas Missionary Fellowship) joined them for the hazardous march into unmapped areas in the north of Thailand. — The wild creatures and wilder people, even bandits, are a constant background as they struggle upwards to make the first contact with hitherto unevangelised tribes, inaccessibly located on the slopes of Elephant Mountain.

As well as the thrilling epic of the march itself the book is rich with on-the-spot observations of local customs and conditions. The whole atmosphere of pioneer missionary work is admirably captured in this fascinating, sometimes tragic, yet stimulating book.

Poster's note: this book is a translation of the German book Abenteuer Am Elephantenberg, published in 1966 by Brunnen-Verlag.
