Product Description

Many looked on Gladys Aylward's expedition to mainland China as foolhardy and dangerous. It was.

On her own, as a single female she carried her passport and other documents along with the only money and belongings that she in a small briefcase with a teapot and a saucepan tied to the handle.

After having purchased her one-way ticket to China she left the United Kingdom with a single-minded determination to do what God had commanded her to. She knew she was meant to go to China even if no mission was prepared to support her.

Unconventional is the only way to describe this journey to the country that would eventually become her home. A theme that would continue throughout her mission work in China where she thwarted authorities became involved in the Chinese resistance and rescued over 100 children from the invading Japanese army. Recommended for ages 9 to 14.

Editorial Reviews

I was moved by this account and inspired by Gladys's total trust in God's provision. As an adult I would now like to read about her life in more depth. For a younger reader, this is a well-paced version of an inspiring biography which should appeal to both boys and girls. I would heartily recommend it!
TRY ANOTHER TRAILBLAZER As well as Gladys Aylward No Mountain too High, I'd recommend that you look at Amy Carmichael, Rescuer by night. This makes up a nice set of female role models from a variety of different background. Amy was from Ireland and was a bit of a dreamer. Gladys was from London and definitely working class. Isobel Kuhn was from America and well educated. It just goes to show that it doesn't matter where you are from or what your background is - God has a job for you to do.

    I expected a bit more in depth, and a longer book, but I was not disappointed by the contents of the book. It covered all the basics, in a short, simple manner that younger children will be able to understand. I recommend it for elementary school students, but it is too simple for Jr. High levels.

    Overall, a good book.

    We used the book to go along with our homeschool study of China. It's very interesting and held my ten-year old's eagerattention.
