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
What happens when a teenage boy leaves home and heads into the jungles to evangelize a murderous tribe of South American Indians? For Bruce Olsen it meant capture, disease, terror, loneliness, kdnaping and torture. But what he discovered by trial and error has revolutionized the world of missions. Living with the Motilone Indians since 1961, Olson's efforts have sent a spiritual ripple around the world that reaches deep into the hearts of mission-minded Christians and anthropologists as well as the government of Colombia.
