The inspirational story of the Scottish Missionary pioneer John Gibson Paton (1824-1907). In his own words, John tells us of his pioneering mission work among cannibals in the New Hebrides (now Vanuatu). Living with constant dangers and death threats, battling against illness and enduring great personal loss and sacrifice, John G Paton laboured on and showed great love for the island peoples. He had the joy of eventually seeing many people come to Christ and living a totally transformed lifestyle. In this autobiography John G Paton tells his own story. The material, which was collected over many years, was then compiled and edited by John's brother, Rev James Paton, (1843-1906) who supported the mission back home in Scotland. James was an author and Presbyterian minister in Scotland. Abridged from the original autobiography.
