The reader's interest in this exciting account of the life of a South Sea Island missionary is captured from the very first chapter ...... readers are encouraged to apply the lessons of his life to their own through the Thinking Further Topics. (The Gospel Magazine)
The Christian legacy of this amazing missionary is still felt today in the South Sea Islands. Reading true life stories like this help us realise what difficulties really are. John G Paton was no stranger to struggle. This is not the story of a gentleman missionary who wilts at the first hardship. This man went through the school of hard knocks to become a missionary in one of the toughest areas of Glasgow - and then on to the savage tribes of the South Sea Islands. Being a missionary is hard - it certainly was back then. For many their very life was in the balance and John G Paton was no exception. Cannibals and warring tribes were daily dangers. (Catherine MacKenzie ~ Author and CF4K Editor)

This is a good book, but not excellent. The writing quality could be improved. Occasionally, the book advances forward in time rather abruptly. And, it wasn't even clear what century the book took place in until over 30 pages into the book! Still, it's a good book for those desiring to have missionary stories available to their children, and also points out some of the increased difficulties of mission work before satellite phones, airplanes, media devices, and other modern aids. But, I don't particularly feel a pressing burden to check out other titles in the series.
