Christian Focus Gladys Aylward: No Mountain Too High, Trail Blazers Series

Many looked on Gladys Aylward's expedition to mainland China as foolhardy and dangerous. It was.

On her own, as a single female she carried her passport and other documents along with the only money and belongings that she in a small briefcase with a teapot and a saucepan tied to the handle.

After having purchased her one-way ticket to China she left the United Kingdom with a single-minded determination to do what God had commanded her to. She knew she was meant to go to China even if no mission was prepared to support her.

Unconventional is the only way to describe this journey to the country that would eventually become her home. A theme that would continue throughout her mission work in China where she thwarted authorities became involved in the Chinese resistance and rescued over 100 children from the invading Japanese army. Recommended for ages 9 to 14.

I expected a bit more in depth, and a longer book, but I was not disappointed by the contents of the book. It covered all the basics, in a short, simple manner that younger children will be able to understand. I recommend it for elementary school students, but it is too simple for Jr. High levels.
Overall, a good book.

We used the book to go along with our homeschool study of China. It's very interesting and held my ten-year old's eagerattention.
