From the Inside Flap:

The great adventure of Damien the Leper began quietly over a century ago. Since then, his remarkable story has become legend throughout the world.

Joseph De Veuster left his secure life in Belgium, thrusting aside all thoughts of personal danger and spending the rest of his days as Father Damien comforting the sick and the dying. Though virtually entombed among the living dead of a leper colony on the island of Molokai, Father Damien managed to find beauty and enchantment in the lush surroundings. His extraordinary journey of the spirit comes to life in John Farrow's splendid biography, which has become a classic over the years and is sure to endure as long as people thrill to deeds of valor and pay homage to the great spiritual truths so perfectly reflected in this unforgettable story of courage, sacrifice, and devotion.

About the Author:

Though perhaps best known for his work as a Hollywood film director, John Farrow (1904-1963) was also quite prolific as a writer. Among his several books is Damien the Leper, which he was inspired to write after learning of Damien's story during a trip to Tahiti.
