The Dayuma Story by Ethel Emily Wallis (w/Jacket!) 1960


The Dayuma Story: Life Under Auca Spears. By Ethel Emily Wallis, Harper & Brothers, New York, 1960.


Five young missionaries were martyred by the fierce Auca tribe of Ecuador and their sacrifice was related in "Through Gates of Splendor" and "The End of the Spear." This continuation of that tragic story deals with a young Auca woman, Dayuma, who flees from her tribe and meets Rachel Saint, sister of one of the martyred missionaries, who converts the young woman to Christianity. The book deals with what happened after Dayuma returned to her savage tribe. The book includes an epilogue by Rachel Saint herself and photo inserts.
