From the author of Peace Child, Don Richardson, comes Lords of the Earth, an unforgettable story of missionary tenacity and zeal that sold over 100,000 copies in the hardcover edition. // Engulfed in the darkness of Irian Jaya's Snow Mountains live the Yali-naked cannibals who call themselves "lords of the earth." Yet in terror and bondage they serve women-hating, child-despising gods. Missionary Stan Dale dared to enter their domain. // Lords of the Earth is the story of Dale, his wife, his companions, and thousands of Yali tribesmen-all swept together in a maelstrom of agony and blood that climaxes in a dramatic, unexpected ending. If you were captivated by Don Richardson's "can't-put-it-down" style in Peace Child, you will be moved by Lords of the Earth in a new and different way.

"The Yali people of Indonesia call themselves "Lords of the Earth," and they live by a set of rules designed to appease a wrathful god. But when a disillusioned member looks for another mythos, or framing story, he can't find one until an Australian missionary arrives. There follows a testimony to the transforming power of the gospel. The story takes place in the 1950s and 1960s, not the 1800s. Raymond Todd is a capable reader. His voice is clear, and he smoothly articulates Yali names and common phrases. But his reading of dialogue is flat, with no hint of a cadence or articulation different from that of standard English. This is due in part to the writing, but he also lacks an appropriate degree of emotion. R.C.G. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
