The astonishing true story of a 19-year-old American—his capture by the Motilone Indians and his adventures in Christianizing the Stone Age tribe. Bruce Olson faced capture, disease, terror, loneliness and torture to evangelize the Motilone Indians of South America. What he discovered by trial and error has revolutionized the world of missions.

Living with the Motilone Indians since 1961, Olson's efforts have also won him the friendship of four presidents of Colombia and appearances before the United Nations.

This updated edition of Bruchko includes the story of his 1988 kidnapping by communist guerrillas and the ten months of captivity that followed.

Bruce Olson's story will amaze you and remind you that simple faith in Christ can make anything possible.
