'They plan to kill you all! You must get out!' With that warning John Paton and his friends grabbed what little possessions they had and fled into the jungle. The Warrior Chief of Tanna was taking revenge on the mission man who threatened his power and the hold he had over the ordinary men and women of the island. John has to run for his life!
In the heat and humidity of the South Sea Island, John G Paton is far away from his Scottish home. And as he runs for his life he is thinking of rescue... a rescue for himself from the dangers all around and a rescue for the thousands of South Sea Islanders who still don't know about Jesus Christ and the love of God.
