Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The second book in the series following on from the bestselling Rainforest AdventuresChildren are fascinated with the natural world around them and with facts and information about animals that they have never seen. However often good nature programmes on T.V. or articles in magazines centre on evolution and completely ignore the Creator. Each story has a Bible verse and lesson for the reader to take away. Written by someone who spent his life in the Rainforest this book has the added benefit of being written by someone who has been there lived there and experienced the culture not just someone who has read the encyclopaedias.

Synopsis:

Heartwarming, real life story of Mary Jones, a young girl living in rural Wales in the late 1700s. Mary was a popular girl who loved her parents, worked hard and was keen to learn but most of all she longed to have a bible of her own. But Mary knew that bibles were hard to come by and if she was fortunate enough to find one, it would be expensive so her dearest wish looked as if it would be an impossible dream! But, after six years of saving hard she sets off to walk a round trip of 50 miles on her bare feet, in the hope that she will be able to buy a bible and bring it home. Mary's dream comes true and her dedication to God and determination to get a copy of His word inspires the setting up of the 'British and Foreign Bible Society'. An inspiring story of a young girl's commitment to God and love for His word.
