5 Stars Out Of 5
Great story of God's work in Ecuador
December 23, 2011
I first read Mission to the Headhunters in 2006 while anticipating a trip to the same area Frank Drown describes in this book. What a delight to find that it is a well-written page-turner, covering decades of God's work among the Shuar, Achuar, and Waodoni (formerly known as as Auca) peoples. People who once pursued vengeance, spearing their enemies, now walk in God's ways. Drown's detailed, and often humorous, descriptions of their work make this a great read. I have purchased and given away several copies through the years and am delighted that it is still in print for a new generation. For those familiar with the 1956 martyrdom of five young American missionaries in the area, this book adds another layer of detail. Drown led the search party for the men. The cover photo was taken at that time. Highly recommended!
