My son and I read this together, and while it was a great story, it was hard to get through at some places where the writing seemed to sag. Still, a fascinating read and wonderful story of God's sovereignty!
"Bruchko: The Astonishing True Story of a 19-Year-Old American, His Capture by the Motilone Indians and His Adventures in Christianizing the Stone Age Tribe," by Bruce Olson, is definitely a truly wonderful book, providing you can survive graphic details of jungle life (such as eating grubs, pulling arrows out of your legs, and being chained to a tree for 3 months).
Personally, I enjoyed the book. It told of God's provision, His character, and how He will always watch over His children - no matter where they are. If you loved this book, you'll want to buy its sequel, which has the equally long title of "Bruchko and the Motilone Miracle: How Bruce Olson Brought a Stone Age Tribe Into the 21st Century," and bears an equally inspiring message.
I urge you to read it - but a disclaimer for all is that if you are a sit-by-the-fire-Brambly-Hedge-reading-person, this is not the book for you. Nuh-uh.
This is an excellent book. My parents read it to me when I was a child. They liked to read missionary books to us. This was by far my favorite. I plan to read it to my daughter when she gets a little older.
This is a great book and testimony of what God can do through people who are devoted, and give all to Him. One of the best books I have read. I would highly recommend it especially those considering missionary work. God does amazing things!
