Bruce Olson

The Motilone Indians lived in a wild jungle area on the border between Venezuela and Columbia. No-one had ever been close enough to learn any of their language, or describe their physical culture. Their only contact with the outside world was with arrows.
Raw, lanky, nineteen-year-old Bruce Olson, turned down by his mission board, knew that God had called him to live with the Motilones. He was totally unprepared though for the years of danger, sickness, rejection and desperate loneliness which followed, until at last he won the confidence of the people, and learned how to bring them the message of Christ without destroying their culture. His faith and his determination to act on behalf of the Motilones against marauding outlaws and settlers make this one of the most remarkable missionary stories of the twentieth century.
