John G. Paton - South Sea Island Rescue by Kay Walsh

Trailblazers Series

By Various
Level 9

The Trailblazers series are inspiring books on historical missionaries, preachers, teachers, and others. Written by different authors, these books are filled with faith promoting stories and powerful moral messages. Please note that some of the books cover heavy topics such as cannibalism and murder, although treated in a non-graphic way. Each of the books also ends with a “Thinking Further” section, and some contain more specific doctrine. Parents may want to preview the Thinking Further sections to see if the doctrine taught aligns with their beliefs.
