    DescriptionIrish missionaries have left enduring and valuable legacies in fields as diverse as medicine, education, politics, ecology, and sport. In the course of their work, they face enormous challenges. They must adapt to the harsh environments of jungles, deserts, or city slum; wrestle with obscure languages; and offer respite to the victims of war, famine, or tribal violence. Some have paid a high price at the hands of bandits, hostile regimes, or tropical diseases. These men and women have had unique adventures, misadventures, and truly extraordinary experiences. This book provides vivid personal accounts of the most memorable experiences in their adopted homes. The stories they tell are amusing, informative, and in some cases harrowing - but always engrossing.
