Book Synopsis
This is the compelling true story of the author's parents, who lived as missionaries among Stone Age Spinifex aborigines in the Australian outback for almost two decades. Exciting adventures - vast cultural differences - living day to day under challenging conditions - became the undreamed-of reality for Bob and Ethel Stewart, an average American couple.

In 2003, an Australian government official toured outback aboriginal communities. He was stunned to discover that, more than 35 years later, the aborigines of Western Australia not only remembered them, but still highly revered their Tjamu and Lyunku.

An excellent, inspiring book! This is a look at one family's calling to become missionaries to Australia's outback and the challenges they faced, both getting there and living there. One particularly inspiring passage tells of a time when the author's father was worrying about needing money for new tires for the Jeep, and his wife told him not to worry because she had been assured, whiled praying, that a check for that very purpose was already on its way. The next week, they received a check that specified that it was to be used for tires. It's amazing what faith in God can do! After reading this book, I highly recommend readers to follow up with "Child of the Outback" by this same author.
