The remarkable story of the courage and compassion of a woman who dared to challenge a mission field that had come to be known as "the white man's grave." From earliest childhood in Dundee, Scotland, Mary Slessor desired to carry the gospel to the unreached people groups of West Africa. From the moment of her arrival in 1876, she encountered and overcame both the primitive hazards of pioneer missionary work and the barbarous social practices of the tribes to whom she had been sent. In time churches were planted, schools were built and medical help was made available. So thorough was Mary's knowledge and understanding of the language and customs that she was appointed vice-consul for the British government in the region. Government authorities were continually amazed at her godly influence in the lives of the people she served. The personal story of one of the greatest missionaries of the past century.
