On February 12, 2005, Dorothy Stang, a 73-year-old Sister of Notre Dame de Namur who had lived and ministered in Brazil for nearly 40 years, was shot and killed by two hired gunmen. This is the powerful story of her work, her life and her legacy. This biography reveals the dangers faced by those who challenge commercial interests, government collusion and large-scale land-grabbing in the Amazon. Yet it is a story of life freely given, a celebration of courage and solidarity with the people who wish to live in the rainforest without destroying its abundance. It is an expose not only of greed and violence, but of faith and simple love.
