Now, the updated edition of a missionary classic, the story of martyr Nate Saint...the "Jungle Pilot"
In 1956, pilot Nate Saint and four other missionaries were killed in Ecuador by the Waodani (Auca) Indians they had come to serve. Jungle Pilot is the gripping story of Nate's faithful service and enduring legacy for Christ and His kingdom.
This new edition tells the original story and then brings it up to date through the epilogue and time line written by Nate's son, Stephen, who recently returned to the jungles of Ecuador to see and record the remarkable progress in the work pioneered by Nate and his missionary friends.
"Here is proof that the life that was lived on Galilee's dusty roads may be lived in the jungles of Ecuador--even in a twentieth century airplane. Nate knew that there is only one thing worth expending one's life for--the will of God. How did he set about to do this? Through Nate's own clear-eyed writing, skillfully incorporated in Jungle Pilot, we have a satisfying answer." -Elisabeth Elliot, author of Through Gates of Splendor and Shadow of the Almighty
"More than a book about a man and a plane, Jungle Pilot is a well-balanced diet of humor, challenge, danger, spiritual power, and tragedy turned to triumph. -Ted Engstrom, past president of World Vision
Russell Hitt has written an honest and believable account of the brief, but adventure-packed life of the human and lovable jungle pilot, Nate Saint. On every page of Jungle Pilot, stroked boldly, is irrefutable proof that Jesus Christ is still daring to leave His Kingdom in the hands of plain people like ourselves! Nate Saint's life is memorable because he was a typical American fellow who dared to leave his life in the Hands of Jesus Christ." -Eugenia Price, author of Early Will I Seek Thee
