    1. I have always loved the story of Mary Slessor. I read this book when I was young and re-read it recently to my children. They enjoyed every bit of it. It is full of adventure, danger, as Mary boldly proclaims the gospel of Jesus. It is written in a simple way, and kids can easily understand it. Mary Slessor has always been one of my "real-life heroes". My son (8) was captivated by the jungles, wild animals, un-civilized people and the dangers Mary went through to win those people to the Lord. Sh [...]

    2. Mary Slessor's life is worth telling. I read this book to prepare to teach a lesson on missionary pioneers. Some of the facts differ from another autobiography I read about her, but this is a simple read, and I was able to download it for free.

    3. I'm not sure when this was originally published, as my Moody Pocket Books edition is undated. But I'm guessing that it was in the fifties or sixties. Because of this the style is a little outdated, and the language is occasionally what we would now term politically incorrect. While it is a heroic and inspiring tale for children, I would suggest parents either read it with their kids, or read it beforehand and discuss it. Some of the incidents that occur are quite shocking, and may be traumatic t [...]

    4. Story starts our really slow, but after awhile you begin to think One Person did all this and a woman in 1850's. It's a lot of faith for one person to have. I read this on my Nook - and the book was free on Many Books in e-book formats.

    5. I read this on my Kindle app for my phone. I think the only reason I kept reading it is because she kept putting herself into dangerous situations. The writing was lacking, the sentences were very short and didn't flow well. It was pretty good for a book about a missionary.

    6. Wow! What a woman! This book is an account of Mary Slessor and all that she did for God. Not too much fluff just very full of details of her mission work.

    7. Ugh. Evangelical, missionary, simple-minded claptrap. A proper biography might be interesting, but this is like something out of a Victorian Sunday School.
