Publisher's Description


This fascinating book recounts the up-and-down experiences of a missionary kid growing up overseas away from home in the 1960s. A sensitive autobiographical exploration of the universal trials of adolescence, Paul Heusinkveld's Elephant Baseball luxuriates in narrative fluidity—truly a riveting read.

Author Bio


Paul Heusinkveld grew up as the son of medical missionaries in Arabia and India and graduated from Kodaikanal International School in 1968 and later from Hope College. An inventor with three patents, he served many years in the U.S. Navy and the Department of State, with eight overseas postings and six tours in Washington D.C.

Editorial Reviews

Kai Bird
— author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning American Prometheus
"Paul Heusinkveld really did play elephant baseball—but his memoir evokes something far more exotic, a magical stepping back into a childhood spent at an American missionary school, Kodaikanal, cloistered at 7,000 feet in the misty mountains of South India. Heusinkveld writes with a heartache for a time and place that no longer exists, but along the way he explores his own identity and grapples with an unthinkable tragedy."

Paul Zorn
— St. Olaf College
"An appealing account, self-deprecating and often very funny, of growing and changing in circumstances at once highly unusual and universally human. . . . The story goes well beyond nostalgia; it shows missionaries and their families in their full complexity and builds to a gripping, moving conclusion."
