Product Description

On November 12, 2012, during his eighteenth trip into the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, Kenneth Bae inadvertently broke his own cardinal rule: never bring an external computer hard drive into the country. Now North Korean authorities had it--and him. What did they want?Would he ever see his family again?

Sentenced to fifteen years at a remote North Korean prison camp, Bae would withstand psychological torture, forced labor, and failing health--ultimately becoming the longest-held American prisoner in the DPRK since the Korean War. While the excruciating experience threatened to break his spirit, his faith in God's unwavering love would not falter.

Now Bae reveals his version of these events and shines the spotlight on those whom he hopes his supporters will remember: the people of North Korea. Not Forgotten is a riveting account of one man's sacrifical love for a forgotten people suffering under a brutal dictator.

Publisher's Description

For the first time, Kenneth Bae tells the full story surrounding his arrest and imprisonment in North Korea.

Not Forgotten is a modern story of intrigue, suspense, and heart. Driven by his passion to help the people of North Korea, Bae moves to neighboring China to lead guided tours into the secretive nation. Six years later, after eighteen successful excursions in and out of the country, Ken is suddenly stopped at the border: he inadvertently brought his hard drive, that reveals the true nature of his visits, to customs. He is arrested, brought to Pyongyang for further questioning, and sentenced to fifteen years of hard labor. His crime? Attempting to overthrow the North Korean government. He may never see his family again.

Back in America, family and friends rally support by establishing a website and creating a petition for Ken’s release. Soon, major media outlets decry Ken’s unjust imprisonment, bringing needed attention that culminates in President Obama’s call for prayer on behalf of Ken at the 2014 National Prayer Breakfast. Meanwhile, Ken grapples with his new, solitary reality as a captive of one of the world’s most brutal governments.

From the first harrowing moments of his ordeal to his release—and even today—Ken never wavers in his love for the North Korean people, even his captors. Not Forgotten is both a compelling narrative of one man’s dedication to serving the less fortunate and a modern testament of a missionary forced to rely solely on the God who sent him into dangerous territory. Readers will marvel at the rare, firsthand tour of life inside the most shrouded country on the planet, meeting its people, experiencing their daily lives, taking in the landscape, and encountering the tyranny of a totalitarian regime. With its combined spiritual and secular appeal, this never-before-told story is sure to captivate and inspire readers of all ages.
