Clariss Brubaker Smith shared the humor and tears of these brave, modern day Bible transporters. Valiant believers had their own startling comments:
? Even if I go to prison or die, don't stop bringing Bibles.

I pursued my dream to see my book printed. It took 25 years to fulfill it, but I wanted to tell the story of the men and women whose stories had not been told. It happened, July 2011.
