    Simple read detailing the life accomplishments of one mans missionary journey in Tibet. His story is inspiring, convicting and exciting! Great reminders of the power of God and the love He has for all people. The Plymires paved the way for other missionaries. I personally know people who have directly benefitted from his life work in Tibet.

    A true missionary adventure written by a dear friend of ours about his father. We had the honor of hosting he & his wife in our home for a meal with our children while living in Springfield, MO. He blessed us with many artifacts from Tibet. Reading this, you will feel like you are there, and you will burn with the same passion and determination that kept his father on the almost impossible journey of reaching these precious people.

    Borrowed this book from Justin Banks, reading about an American missionary who preaches the gospel for 40 years in Tibet. Amazing faith on display as God grants favor and protection on this amazing journey.

    Written not by a professional but by a family member, the missionary's grandson. While the poor quality is a distraction, if your heart is seeking the message the book conveys, you will still find it. Even as he was leaving Tibet and the Far East before the Communist regime took over, he shared the gospel with an old Tibetan. "With a deep sigh he shook his head. 'I cannot comprehend,' he said.

He turned slowly and walked away." Tragic words indeed.

    While this is an incredible story, I would rather have seen the actual letters written by Victor instead of the tripe written by his grandson. Actual quote: "Except for one short trip among the Tibetans in the spring, the remainder of the missionary's time was spent in lesser service: sewing up sword wounds, amputating frozen fingers, extracting splinters, and lancing boils. All of this seemed unimportant when compared to the need for taking the gospel to unreached villages across the mountains While this is an incredible story, I would rather have seen the actual letters written by Victor instead of the tripe written by his grandson.

All of this seemed unimportant when compared to the need for taking the gospel to unreached villages across the mountains of Tibet." The entire story is dunked in the rankness of how Mr. Plymire suffered, and I mean that the author never misses a chance to beat the reader over the head with "LOOK AT THE THINGS MY ANCESTOR DID LOOK AT HOW HE SUFFERED BUT STAYED STEADFAST IN THE NAME OF JESUS" and the repeated slights on the people of Tibet (IE, never failing to point out how 'primitive' the people of Tibet were, referring to the way they dress as inherently threatening, the one conversation with a Tibetan about his personal faith where the author adds that the Tibetan knew that "The man was silent because he knew that none among men were so wicked, so immoral, as his own kind" There are some interesting things about Tibetan culture, but I'd rather just read the original letters as released.

    While this was an inspiring book full of interesting stories, without a structured narrative, most of the stories were kind of forgettable. Much of the events of Mr. Pylmire's life seemed to be repeated over and over again, so there was little to distinguish between the start of his ministry and the end, other than the rise of communist China.

    Terrific! I love missionary biographies and this is one of the best. Much of it taken from his diaries and letters so it has an authentic feel to all the writing. Photographs are wonderful - a bygone era. It's so hard to imagine the time period when so many world events were occurring and this part of the world was isolated, and yet a part of the conflict. I highly recommend it. Terrific! I love missionary biographies and this is one of the best. Much of it taken from his diaries and letters so it has an authentic feel to all the writing.

    Definitely inspiring... not many people are courageous (or faithful) enough to endure the journey Mr. Plymire did

    Great missionary biography. If God protected Victor Plymire...is there anything too hard for him?
