Bruce Olsen is an amazing man with an incredible story. Words that come to mind are: unique, revolutionary, transformational, and Christlike. I recommend Bruchko often because there really is no other book like it.
This is one of my favorite books of all time. It will change your life. I think this man has had a great impact on the Motilone Indians in South America. Bruce, an American, has lived in the jungles of of Columbia and Venezuela for most of his life, giving up all the creature comforts of modern day culture. His story is remarkable.
I recommend reading the first Bruchko book first, which tells about his early life and how he got to the jungle. This book gives a review of the first book in the first few chapters, and then picks up where the last one left off.
You will not regret buying this book. It also makes a great gift.
High school students and college students will also enjoy it, as well as those bound for seminary or the mission field.
I guarantee you they will make a movie about this man one day. You simply can not make this stuff up. (D.V., Amazon Review)
