This is edge-of-your-seat reading, a story about the adventure-filled life of aviator and missionary Nate Saint who was martyred in the jungles of Ecuador in the mid 1950s.
Author Russell Hitt writes expressively of Saint's life, his work, and his laserlike persistence, through deep peril, in the service of the Lord. Jungle Pilot is an inspirational example of how one life challenged an entire generation of Christians.
"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."
