On an island in Eastern Indonesia, lived a semi-nomadic group of hunters and gatherers with a fearsome reputation that made many unwilling to even step foot into their territory. In 1982, a small group of outsiders took that very step. In this gripping and honest account, John and Betty describe their experience as they along with their co-workers, moved into the jungles of Indonesia to live among the Tugutil people. Working tirelessly, amidst many challenges and impossible circumstances, John and Betty strived to learn the people's language and culture, and understand their way of life, all for the sake of being able to communicate clearly the lifesaving message they had come to bring. The Tugutil provides a firsthand account of how God worked in the hearts of an entire people group, totally transforming them from the inside out.

A movie should be made on this book
5 stars By Daniel Scott Mays, Aug 04 2015
From start to end, totally engrossed in John and Betty Sharpe's story.  I love any book that opens my mind and knowledge to "other peoples groups".  This was no disappointment! The courage of this amazing couple, moving to this remote place with their young twin daughters, a place that held the strong view that if more than a single birth, evil was at hand and one or more of the children born had to be put to death or face the ire of evil gods. 
Faith, Trust, Perseverance and a love for God and the people He called them to work and live with heightens - their story - one's faith in God also.  His faithfulness and love and the lengths He goes to and invites us to join Him in His Mission is humbling.  
For all Missionaries, Leaders and Lay Leaders, take heed to the wisdom found in chapter 35!!  It is invaluable.
