An incredible book. Yes, there are over 500 pages and I'm only half-way through, but this book is simply amazing.Mr. Paton does a wonderful job of describing his life as a missionary on the island of Tanna. He tells of his adventures in a way that is humorous, God-honoring, touching, and very exciting. For being written over a hundred years ago, this is one of the most well-written books I've ever read. (I am in my teens and tend to skip over the boring parts in books; it was impossible for me to do so in this one.)I try to read just a little bit each day and seem to be making good progress. I strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in missionaries, serving God, or an exciting godly read. This book is well worth it.
