Bruchko, by Bruce Olson
When Bruce Olson was 19, he bought a one-way ticket to South America and traveled into the uncharted jungles of northeast Colombia. There, he found the Motilones, a fierce, primitive Indian tribe. Though Olson had no official sponsorship from a missions board or organization, in the ensuing years, he established medical clinics and schools for the tribe. He has translated Scripture into their language, and he has led many of them in accepting Christ as their Savior. Find it here.
