A TRUE STORY OF FAITH AND COURAGE^^In January of 1956, the world recoiled in shock with the news. Five American missionaries had been speared to death in the Equadorian jungles by Auca Indians--reportedly the most savage tribe on earth. Years later, it became clear that what had seemed to be the tragic ending of those missionaries' dreams was only the first chapter of one of the most breathtaking missionary stories of the twentieth century.^^"The Savage, My Kinsman" tells the story, in text and pictures, of Elisabeth Elliot's venture into Auca territory three years after the death of her husband, Jim Elliot. Elisabeth and her daughter Valerie, then three years old, returned to the jungle along with Rachel Saint, the sister of one of the other slain men. The linguistic work of these women brought Christ's message of salvation to the tribe that had killed their loved ones. They became the first to enter Auca territory-and live to tell the story.^^
