9781931038546: A Hundred Camels: A Mission Doctor's Sojourn and Murder Trial in Somalia

As Jean Janzen observes,"This vivid, compelling story becomes a vehicle of beauty-the kind that wounds as we recognize our own fears and prejudices but also the beauty of a compassion that heals." Here is the account of a Mennonite mission doctor tried for a patient's murder. As this suspenseful, true-life drama unfolds, readers are given access to an ancient, clan-based culture few Americans have experienced in a country recently declared by the United Nations as a humanitarian crisis "worse than Darfur." In her Foreword, Shirley H. Showalters comments that "This book contains an equal measure of travelogue, mystery story, medical diary, and cultural history. Underneath the excitement of the courtroom drama, murder trial, and many escapades in a new culture, lies the story of how one man's spirit grew, first in his own country and his own faith and then in a new country with a different faith."
