Overview

He was not your "typical" missionary-he was an African called to serve in the United States. No one would believe the adventures of nineteenth-century missionary Samuel Morris- unless they believe in a God of compassion and grace. Samuel Morris began life as Kaboo, the eldest son of a tribal chieftain. He was a prince, but then he became a pawn-held in torturous limbo until his father could pay ransom to an enemy tribe. When Kaboo's captors became too greedy, and no amount of ivory could rescue him, a death of unbelievable cruelty awaited. And then God intervened. From Kaboo's miraculous escape, to his acceptance of Christ and baptism by missionaries, to his remarkable voyage to America where he would have an amazing impact on scores of lives, the story of Samuel Morris is an is an adventure of divine proportions.
