Read the true first-hand account of Laura Hardin Carson and the work she and her husband Arthur Carson did converting the Chin people of Burma (now called Myanmar) to Christianity. Young and old alike will be inspired by this retelling of the life of this young American missionary couple. Learn how they became the first missionaries to the Chin people and how their sacrifice and service led to the conversion of an entire people group now numbering in the millions. See how God molds Laura and Arthur into His image as they brave extraordinary hardships while beginning their own family far from home. The perseverance of the Carsons blazed a new trail through the jungles of a land steeped in demon worship and superstition, and now the light of the Gospel shines there brightly. In recent years, after decades of forced isolation from the rest of the world, Burma has opened up to the flow of Christians longing to connect and bless their brothers and sisters who have endured great persecution. Those returning from Myanmar are carrying with them amazing and wonderful stories of God's grace among the saints of this somewhat forgotten outpost of the Kingdom of God. This book reminds the faithful of the pioneering work done by the Carsons and others who gave their lives for the work of Christ in this land, and will, no doubt, inspire others to the same.

She parlayed that into the Texas Lil’s Dude Ranch, 200 acres of gorgeous rolling property near what would become the Texas Motor Speedway She accomplished all this while raising children and dealing with a drunken, abusive husband.

This book will be useful for researchers and scholars of anthropology, ethnohistory ethnoarchaeology and of allied subjects like sociology, social work, geography who are interested in tribal studies.
