E-BOOK EXCERPT

2005 ECPA Retailer's Choice Award winner for best biography/autobiography! Steve Saint was five years old when his father, missionary pilot Nate Saint, was speared to death by a primitive Ecuadorian tribe. In adulthood, Steve, having left Ecuador for a successful business career in the United States, never imagined making the jungle his home again. But when that same tribe asks him to help them, Steve, his wife, and their teenage children move back to the jungle. There, Steve learns long-buried secrets about his father's murder, confronts difficult choices, and finds himself caught between two worlds. Soon to be a major motion picture (January 2006), End of the Spear brilliantly chronicles the continuing story that first captured the world's attention in the bestselling book, Through Gates of Splendor.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

The saga of the Waorani has not ended. The great River Curaray, which bathes its lands in the Ecuadorian Amazon, feeds its people, transports its canoes, and conceals its history, then follows its winding course all the way to the sea, so that those who have died and were left on its beaches may rise up as story teller for us who remain. "Gentle Savage" is a tribute to the oral traditions of a people who did not know how to forgive, but along their pathway learned to do so. This remarkable narration is a rustic song that emerges out of indigenous culture with all the voices of liberty that our own moral censure does not know how to fully appreciate. But here it is, the work of Menkaye AEnkaedi, with Kemo and Dyowe, sculpted with the almost indigenous talent of the "Moipa of Peace," who for our providential good fortune brings back to life the sleeping voices of a people known as the Waorani-strong, fearless, resilient, and enduring. -- Cleiton Oliveira Cleiton Oliveira is a Brazilian sociologist/missionary serving with Harvest Foundation, and works with the indigenous populace in the areas bordering Brazil, Peru, Columbia, and Paraguay, offering mediation services between those urban and indigenous communities and their governments. Timo Paulson's translation of Menkaye's narrative opens up for the reader the mind (and heart) of a nomadic hunter-gatherer living in a stone-age culture in the Amazon rainforest. As disturbing as this perspective might be to the western mindset, one can easily recognize the fundamental questions that we all must answer: What is right, and what is wrong? Who am I, and what does the Man Maker want with me?" -- Brad Quist, MD (Nantue) Doctor to the Waora

E-BOOK EXCERPT

The inspiring true story of a US Special Forces soldier who was medically retired after stepping on an IED, and his incredible return to active duty. Sergeant First Class (SFC) Ryan Hendrickson is a brave, determined, and courageous soldier -- a Green Beret clearing the way for his twelve-man team while conducting combat operations against the Taliban. As the "tip of the spear," his role is to insure the route taken by U.S. and Afghan troops are free of IEDs -- improvised explosive devices. Many soldiers do not survive their last step; those who do often lose at least one limb. While rescuing an Afghan soldier outside a mud-hut compound in 2010 -- knowing that he was in "uncleared" territory -- Ryan stepped on an IED with his right foot. The device exploded, leaving his foot dangling at the end of his leg. American soldiers losing a limb is an all-too-common occurrence. But what makes Ryan's story different is that after undergoing two dozen surgeries and a tortuous rehabilitation, he was medically retired but fought to return to active duty. Multiple skin grafts to his lower leg and right foot successfully reattached his lower leg, and he was aided in his recovery by wearing a new prosthetic device known as an IDEO (Intrepid Dynamic Exoskeletal Orthosis). Once he passed a series of crucial physical tests, Ryan was able to rejoin the Green Berets within a year and physically perform his duties, redeploying to Afghanistan in March 2012. In 2016, he volunteered to return to Afghanistan with Bravo Company, 2nd Battalion, 7th Special Forces Group. During a firefight with the Taliban, he risked his life under heavy enemy fire to rescue three Afghan soldiers cut off from friendly forces and return the bodies of two dead Afghan soldiers under the ethos that "no one gets left behind." For his heroic efforts on the battlefield, SFC Ryan Hendrickson was awarded a Silver Star, the nation's third-highest award for valor. An engaging and harrowing account, Tip of the Spear tells the amazing story of one Green Beret's indomitable spirit.
